Studying during the corona situation

The coronavirus (COVID-19) leads to questions about the consequences for your education at UT. Find answers or contact us if your question is not there.

What will your education look like from 1 September onwards?

Starting at the end of August, we will be opening up campus facilities again for education and research for the new academic year 2020-2021. We will provide as much contact time as is possible within Covid-19 government guidelines. Rule of thumb is that practicals, examinations and classes in which personal contact and direct interaction are indispensable, will be offered on campus as often as possible.

In this video message, University of Twente president Victor van der Chijs shares our views on education in the next study year (2020-2021). 

For first-year students

Education activities for new first-year students will be high on the list of priorities, as we believe that a warm and personal welcome is essential for the proper start of your academic career. At this stage, it appears that we are able to resume a substantial number of activities on campus. When certain programme components are not possible to be taught physically, online versions are offered. Some study programmes may offer both physical and online versions of their classes. In order to support students who are unable to participate on campus due to Covid-19 related circumstances in their country or region, we put effort to offer online alternatives if required.
