You need to supply the University with information in time for it to start the process of obtaining a visa/residence permit.
The deadlines below apply to bachelor's, (pre-)master's and exchange students in order to obtain a valid visa/residence permit. The three deadlines correspond to the three steps mentioned on the information page 'How to obtain?'. The visa/residence permit procedure only starts after your acceptance of Offer of Admission. However, if you are an exchange student, the University of Twente will contact you.
Every non-EEA student needs to go through the process, including students who already have a residence permit as we need to verify this.

Visit the websites of the programme of your choice to find the specific application deadlines. If you are admitted, you must have accepted the Offer of Admission before we can start the visa procedures:
If you were registered at UT before and are now returning to complete your study, you will not need an Offer of Admission. Please keep the admission deadlines in mind when applying for a visa:
- If your programme needs to re-evaluate your admission, the deadline is 1 May for starting per 1 September. If you want to start on 1 February, the deadline is 1 October.
- If a new admission is not needed, you may apply for your program again before 1 June (starting 1 September) or before 1 November (starting 1 February)
The visa deadlines as mentioned in the table above are also applicable to you when you are a returning student.
