The UT organises an introduction period for new (international) students before the start of every Fall and Spring semester called Kick-In. During these days you will meet your fellow students and get to know Enschede and the UT campus. During the Kick-In, you can also attend a facility market for international students where you will find out about the many facilities, services and student associations the UT has to offer.
Visit the Kick-In website to register for the introduction period.
The UT will also help you to arrange formalities such as your visa appointment and registration with the municipality of Enschede. If you are an international student and you have been accepted by the UT you will be invited to attend the formality appointments. Please note that attendance at the formality appointments is mandatory for all international students. Not attending your appointments will delay the completion of formalities needed to properly start your studies.
For more information, please visit What to Arrange.
