Newsletter enrolment 2021-2022

Important information and changes regarding re-enrolment, payment and tuition fees for the academic year 2021-2022.

1. STUDENT ACCOUNT

You have a student account from the University of Twente. It is important that you check the email from this account frequently, because we use this account as the means of communicating all information. This can be information about re-enrolment, de-enrolment, tuition fees, law changes et cetera. So please make sure that you check your UT-mail account regularly! If you prefer to use your own email account, please see to it that you forward the mail of the UT account to your own account.

2. TRANSFER FROM UT BACHELOR TO UT MASTER

If you graduate for your Bachelor’s programme before 1 February and you want to start a Master’s programme at our university as of 1 February make an application in Studielink for this particular Master (and arrange the payment of your tuition fee if applicable). After you are official graduated for the Bachelor, we will take care of your Master’s enrolment.

3. TRANSFER FROM UT PRE-MASTER TO UT MASTER

Pre-Master to Master per 1 February (intake moment): in Studielink you have to apply for enrolment for the Master’s programme and arrange the payment of your tuition fees.

4. SMOOTH TRANSFER PER 1 FEBRUARY 2022

In the context of COVID-19 it is possible, under certain conditions, to make use of the so called ‘smooth transfer’ from bachelor’s or pre-master’s programme to a master’s programme per 1 February 2022. This means that you may be allowed to start with a master’s programme even if you have not yet completed your bachelor’s or pre-master’s programme.

If you want to claim for the COVID-19 temporary smooth transfer, please take the following steps:

a.    Please make a request of enrolment in Studielink for the master’s programme of your choice per 1 February.

b.    Contact the study adviser or the master’s coordinator at the faculty as soon as possible. The programme assesses if you are eligible for the smooth transfer.

If the faculty agrees with your smooth transfer to the master’s programme: Student Services will receive your details from the faculty and will process your request for enrolment for the (conditional) master’s programme next to your bachelor’s or pre-master’s programme.

In case you are a pre-master student next to the conditional master’s enrolment: please arrange the payment of your tuition fee for the master’s programme as soon as possible via studentservices@utwente.nl.

In case you are a bachelor student next to the conditional master’s enrolment: you have arranged your tuition fee in Studielink for the bachelor’s programme.

For international students who owe the institutional tuition fee: mind that for the master’s programme you owe the master’s amount of tuition fee. In concrete terms this means that the tuition fee for the bachelor’s programme will be increased to the amount you owe for the master’s programme. In case you are a pre-master student next to the conditional master’s enrolment you owe the full master’s amount of tuition fee.

If the faculty does not agree with a smooth transfer, then you do not meet the conditions for this transfer, meaning you will not be able to enrol in the master’s programme per 1 February 2022. Only after you graduated officially for the bachelor’s programme or officially passed the pre-master’s programme, you are allowed to enrol in the master’s programme (as per the usual bachelor’s-before-master’s ruling).
