I'm studying outside the Netherlands and I have a question regarding your exchange programme.
Your first source of information (application procedure, language requirements, deadlines, etc.) is the general UT website for Exchange students.
Your second source of information is the 'Faculty of Engineering Technology (ET)' website for exchange students, including this FAQ.
Your third source of information is the Faculty Exchange Coordinator. The email-address to use is 'firstname.lastname@example.org', rather than her personal address.
Who is my contact person in the Faculty of Engineering?
This is the exchange coordinator dr.ir. Dorien van de Belt. She prefers to receive emails on the exchange address: email@example.com, rather than her personal address.
Your university is located in the Netherlands. Are all courses taught in Dutch or English?
The majority of courses are now taught in English. The so-called HTHT minors and the ET exchange packages in civil engineering, industrial design and mechanical engineering are all taught in English, as well as virtually all MSc courses. If you look up a course in our Course catalogue, you can always find the language of instruction for this particular course.
Choosing / changing courses
I am a student in Mechanical Engineering (or a related discipline) at one of the following universities: Kaunas University of Technology / Linköping University / Tec de Monterrey / University of Aveiro / University of Stavanger. I heard that my university and the University of Twente are participating in the "ECIU Twin Programme Mechanical Engineering". Does this limit my choice of courses?
It probably does, but you should check with your home university if you are participating in this Twin programme or not. Within the Twin programme, the partners have agreed to offer each other's students specific course packages, which can be found on the Twin website (you might have to scroll down on that page!).
If you are participating outside this Twin programme, then you have the same choice as students from the rest of our partners (who do not participate in this Twin programme).
I have been admitted as an exchange student to your faculty, but I would like to or need to change some courses. How can I do so?
Once you are here, you will be able to check and optionally change your approved course list. During the introduction week ('Kick-In') you will meet staff members of your programme, including the study advisor, to learn more about how to check and to change your course list. In the first week of the lectures you will meet the exchange coordinator, with whom you can discuss matters in more detail.
I'm trying to find out when the lectures are planned of (some of) my chosen course(s), but I can't find anything in your schedule.
On this website about Planning & Timetables you can find information when a particular timetable is published; in general this happens a few weeks before the quartile starts. So it is possible that the course you're looking for, is simply not published yet.
INTRODUCTION / KICK-IN
I have a question regarding the introduction period ('Kick-in'). Who should I contact?
You wil receive information regarding this, including a contact address. However, you can always check the 'Kick-in' website. During the Kick-in you will be introduced to the university in general, and to the programme. For the introduction on programme level you will also receive more information by email.
