Newsletter enrolment 2021-2022

All the information about enrolment, tuition fees, digital authorization, conditions for payment by authorization, uploading of your digital photo, deadlines and intake moments can be found on the website. On this website you can also find the ‘University of Twente enrolment regulation’. This contains a further explanation of the WHW (Higher Education and Research Act), in which you can find the main rules for your enrolment and the tuition fees.

You will receive a student account from the University of Twente. It’s important to check the email from this account frequently, because we use this account as communication means for all information. If you prefer to make use of your own email account, please arrange that you forward the mail of the UT account to your own account. Please check the status of your enrolment regularly at Studielink and your UT-account!

When will I receive my account information from ICT/Lisa ?:
When you are enrolled, you will receive your account details within 48 hours after we have completed your enrolment. You will receive your ICT / Lisa account details by e-mail:

The subject of this e-mail with login details is: “Your personal account information - Your personal account details”.

You will be enrolled when you have met the following requirements:
■ You are admitted.
■ The (certified) required documents are handed in.
■ The tuition fee or premaster amount has been paid by single transfer or (digital) authorization.
■ Fill in your Dutch address in Studielink

All the above has to be arranged before 31 August 2021.

Once you have met the above conditions, you are not automatically enrolled. We will review your request for enrolment and if we agree we will finalize your enrolment. You are enrolled if the status in Studielink (under My study programmes) has changed from <Application submitted> to <Enrolled>. So please keep an eye on your Studielink account to check if your enrolment has been finalized. Keep in mind that there is a processing time.

When you have failed to hand in your enrolment papers complete and on time, this may have the following consequences:
■  You can apply for the next academic year Bachelor September 2022 and (Pre)Master Februari 2022.
■  You won't receive your student card and/or proof of enrolment or you will receive it later.
■  You don’t receive the official confirmation in time.
■  You are unable to enroll in time for exams.
■  You can get problems regarding your student grant.
■  You have to pay a fine due to unauthorized use of your student travel ticket or student grant.
■  When you are not enrolled and have used education-or exam facilities of the University of Twente, you owe the University of Twente a compensation. 

Such problems can’t be rectified, as the law prohibits us from enrolling students with retroactive effect.

The University of Twente has only a few intake moments.
■      Enrolment for a Bachelor’s programme only per 1 September.
■      Enrolment for a Master’s programme per 1 September or per 1 February.

This means that it’s very important for you as a student to arrange your enrolment and payment of the tuition fee in time. Otherwise we can’t enroll you starting 1 September 2021. The next enrolment date for the Bachelor is 1 September 2022 and for the (Pre)Master 1 February 2022.

Your new study-address / mail address will appear in the information system Osiris of the University of Twente automatically.

For more information about the tuition fee for the academic year 2021-2022 check our website. For the payment of the premaster check point 9.

You can arrange your payment for the tuition fee by using Studielink.

There are several ways to pay your tuition fees:

 1. Payment by (digital) authorization in five equal instalments or all at once

In Studielink it is possible to arrange the payment of your tuition fee. You can pay by digital authorization if you have an European IBAN and your bank is connected to SEPA. If someone else is going to pay for you, he or she should also have an European IBAN connected to SEPA AND his/her own DigiD .

IBAN   =   International Bank Account Number; a bank account number to standardize international payments within Europe.

SEPA  =   Single Euro Payments Area; the area within Europe where you can make your payments in one way.  If you meet the requirements necessary for paying your tuition fees by authorization, but you are unable to use the digital authorization in Studielink, please send an email to

Do not forget to mention your student number in this email.

2.     Single transfer
In Studielink you have to choose for the method of payment ‘other method of payment’. If you have chosen for a single transfer you have to transfer the complete amount for your enrolment for the whole academic year before the deadline of 31 August 2021 to IBAN NL33ABNA0405323972. Please make use of one of your own transfer forms, attn. University of Twente, stating your name and student number. Pay attention to a processing time of two weeks into our account.

Name and address of the bank:
Gustav Mahlerlaan 10
1082 PP Amsterdam

It is not permitted to come up with your own payment schedule. 

3.     Exemption through certificate of paid tuition fees

In Studielink you have to choose for the payment method ‘other method of payment’. If you are already enrolled as a student at a Dutch university or institute of higher vocational education and you pay the statutory tuition fee, the University of Twente accepts an original certificate of paid tuition fees. You can request for a certificate of tuition fees paid (BBC) at your university or institute of higher education and they will send this digitally to the University of Twente.

For a pre-Master’s programme you pay an amount per EC. For the academic year 2021-2022 this is € 36,13 per EC. The number of EC’s of your pre-Master makes the total amount you have to pay for your pre-Master’s programme. This is possible in Studielink via one-off direct debit.

Please Note: If you choose  for payment in instalments or in one instalment in Studielink, we will change this into an one-off direct debit..


Due to corona crisis, different regulations apply this year, keep an eye on the notification. Below the normal course of events.

The University of Twente will be enforcing a binding Recommendation on continuation of studies (Binding Study Advice (BSA)) for all Bachelor programs. This means that students who have completed at least 3 modules can continue their programme (the procedures for ATLAS students are different).

A certified copy is a photocopy with an official stamp and signature to verify that it is a true copy of the original document. This official stamp and signature may be from a notary or school.  Photocopies or scans of the documents are no legal proof and therefore they can’t be accepted. Certification is meant to counter fraud.
