You are about to sign up for the bachelor’s in Technical Computer Science. Technical Computer Science has a “Numerus Fixus” — a fixed capacity of 400 places for the 2023-2024 academic year, to be offered to applicants via a selection procedure. Make sure you have registered via Studielink no later then 15 January 2023.
Application for this programme is possible from 1 October until 15 January
Application, selection and enrolment procedure
The timeline (including deadlines) of the application, selection & enrolment procedure for the Bachelor's in Technical Computer Science is described in steps 1 to 3. The procedure described below (including deadlines) also applies to students that are currently enrolled for a different bachelor programme at the University of Twente and consider switching to the TCS programme.
Please note: The following information only apply to the academic year 2023/2024.
Step 1 Apply via Studielink (deadline 15 January 2023 23:59 CET)
Information on how to register via Studielink can be found on the general enrolment and admission page. After registering in Studielink, follow the instructions on how to finalise your registration in the university system. The deadline for registration via Studielink is 15 January 2023.
Deadline registration Studielink: 15 January 2023 23:59 CET
Please be aware that the registration process takes some time as you are required to gather and submit documentation. Start the application procedure on time, as the UT complies with strict national deadlines set by the Dutch Government.
Step 2a Selection procedure: questionnaire (deadline 20 February 2023 23:59 CET)
Between 2 and 4 February 2023 you will receive an invitation from TCS to fill in an online questionnaire about your choice to study Technical Computer Science at the University of Twente. The deadline for completing the questionnaire is 20 February 2023 23:59 CET.
Deadline questionnaire: 20 February 2023 23:59 CET
After you have completed your registration and submitted the completed questionnaire, the questionnaire is checked by the TCS programme. Afterwards you will receive information on whether you are allowed to continue the selection procedure and information on the TCS Entrance Exam.
Step 2b Selection procedure: accepting offer (as from 15 April 2023)
On 15 April 2023, you will receive your ranking number as part of the Studielink procedure. This number will not reflect your performance or score.
You immediately receive a placement offer via Studielink to study TCS and have 2 weeks time to accept the placement offer and finalise your enrolment (be aware: these are two different steps: accepting the offer, and enrolling).
Whether you have already accepted an offer for a place via Studielink or are still awaiting an offer for a place, you need to continue with your enrolment by uploading the required documentation (as described in our admission requirements) before the given deadline.
Deadline uploading certified diploma: 1 July 2023 23:59 CET
If you cannot comply with the admission criteria or provide us with a digital copy of your diploma before the given deadline of 1 July, you can send a substantiated request for an extension to Student Services. If you have received an offer for a place after 1 July, you need to upload the required documents within 2 weeks after receiving the offer for a place. More information on this request for extension can be found here.
Unfortunately, it is neither possible for candidates who require a visa to request an extension for both deadlines nor to receive an offer for a place after 1 July. If you have not complied with the deadlines, your offer for a place will expire 1 July. If you have not received an offer for a place by 1 June, your application will be cancelled. You will have to re-apply for the next academic year.
We advise you to consult the FAQ first if you have any questions regarding admission and/or the selection procedure. If you cannot find your question answered there, please contact the UT Admission Office if you have any questions regarding admission and enrolment and the Numerus Fixus coordinator for questions about the selection procedure.
