At the University of Twente we believe it is important that you pick a programme that suits you; we want to make sure you can successfully complete your studies. That is why we offer various study programme selection activities. These are activities that take place before you start studying. The aim is to give you a realistic idea of the programme and to help you find out whether or not it suits you.


A great way to get a good impression of the programme is to visit an Open Day and/or take part in our Student for a Day programme. We recommend that you visit an Open Day and/or join our Student for a Day programme before enrolling in the Psychology programme:


If you have registered via Studielink for the Bachelor’s programme Psychology, you are required to take part in our study check activities. These among other things include filling in a questionnaire and attending a trial study day. If you do not participate in the study check activities, you will NOT be admissible to the programme. The trial study day – which is one of several study check activities – consists of several presentations, workshops and an assessment, all with the purpose of convincing you and us as in regards to your suitability for the Bachelor’s programme Psychology at the UT and vice versa. The day includes an introduction to the Bachelor’s programme and offers plenty of time for questions and discussions. You will receive an invitation for the mandatory study day (after you have signed up via Studielink), and be required to sign up for one of the following offered dates: Monday 6 March 2017 (afternoon and evening); Tuesday 18 April 2017 (afternoon and evening); or Monday 24 April 2017 (afternoon and evening). In due course you will receive information on how to prepare for the trial study day.


If you are a German student from one of the federal states, or Bundesländern, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Niedersachsen or Bremen, we require you to attend a trial study day in person. If you are an international student from anywhere else, we strongly advise you to attend an on-campus trial study day if you can; alternatively, we can set up a Skype interview with you.
