Why A Dutch Bank Account?
- Scholarships administered by the University of Twente will only be transferred to a Dutch bank account.
- Possibility to pay your tuition fee in five instalments (bachelor and master students).
- Buying train tickets at NS vending machines. Without a Dutch bank card, you have to buy tickets at the office window, which is not always open and is more expensive.
