How to proceed after your application?

Verification of your application

After completing your online application the UT Admission Office will verify your application. If you have submitted your application correctly the admission procedure will be started. The admission committee of your chosen (pre)master programme will evaluate your application and will send the decision in a letter by e-mail and/or by regular mail.

Entrance Acceptance Form

After you have been admitted to a (pre)master programme you will receive an e-mail from Admission Office with a link to the Entrance Acceptance Form (EAF). Fill in and sign the EAF, then return it to UT Admission Office to confirm your application. Admission Office will only continue with further application procedures after the signed EAF has been received.

Certified copies of your documents

Admission Office requires certified copies of (1) your Bachelor degree certificate, (2) Translation of your Bachelor degree certificate and (3) final transcript of records. After receiving your admission letter you need to send these documents to the Admission Office by regular post if you did not do so already. Admission Office will give you the correct post address, once you have been accepted.

A certified photocopy is a copy with an official stamp and signature on each page (if applicable also the reverse side) to verify that it is a true photocopy of the original document. This official stamp and signature may be from a notary or your school or university. Photocopies or scans of the documents mentioned above are not legal proof and therefore they cannot be accepted for enrolment. All documents submitted become property of the University of Twente and will not be returned to you. Please keep in mind that at this point you must also send in your official English Language Test Results
