Partner universities

In order to allow students to go to other partners for courses, a so-called 'bilateral agreement' needs to be in place. Without such agreement, students are typically required to pay tuition fees to the university of choice, even though tuition has been paid to the University of Twente. More information regarding the pros and cons of going to a partner institution as well as the different types of agreements we currently have, can be found in the Canvas-site "Study abroad for ET students", module 3. Destinations. Below you can find the list of our partner universities with whom we have arranged these bilateral agreements. Do note that not all partners offer courses for all our programmes! In both tables below it is indicated for which programme an agreement is valid and how many places there are in total; in the Canvas site "Study abroad for ET students" these tables is structured more user-friendly. In the Canvas-site you will also find additional information per partner university, such as the subject areas you can choose from, how flexible the partner university is in your course selection, etc.

In addition to the overview of partners as given in de sections below, you can also use the search portal of Mobility Online. This portal lists all the UT partners currently defined within Mobility Online. For each partner information is given regarding the international website, procedures, deadlines, etc. The level of detail of that information might differ per partner.

The exchange agreements with non-EU partners can be divided into three groups:

  • (I) - the first group contains the so-called UT-wide agreements (see also the non-EU partners at the International Office study abroad website). As places with these partners are quite limited, students need to be nominated by us for the central draw by International Office; read more about the selection procedure in module "2 Exchange procedure" of the Canvas site.
  • (II) - the second group contains agreements which are shared by different faculties. The available places are divided among those faculties in another draw.
  • (III) - the third and final group contains the agreements with the faculty of ET only.

ECIU ME Minor programme

The University of Twente is partner of the ECIU Minor Programme Mechanical Engineering together with: 

  • University of Stavanger
  • University of Aveiro
  • Kaunas University of Technology
  • Tecnológico de Monterrey 
  • Linköping University

Within this programme the partners have agreed to offer specific exchange packages to participating students. This limits perhaps the choice you have in the selection of courses, but you are assured of a coherent set of courses. Every partner of this programme has up to four exchange places available per semester (Stavanger participates in fall semester only). For more information visit the website.

If you are interested in participating in the ECIU ME Minor programme, please indicate this in the Remarks field of the Application form for Courses abroad!

Double Degree

Currently the University of Twente has one Double Degree Programme for Mechanical Engineering. For more information about this programme, please click here.
