Doctorate education at the Twente Graduate School gives students an opportunity to immerse themselves in high-impact research projects across a variety of disciplines and to benefit from close interactions with world-class researchers and teachers.

The Twente Graduate School is a breeding ground for research talent. It sets high standards. There is a rigorous selection for the research and educational programmes. We want to retain talent for the university in an early stage by offering prospective, talented, motivated students a special, high quality educational experience. This applies to our own university's talent in general, and to international talent in particular.
