Student mobility (EN)

Partner universities

In order to allow students to go to other partners for courses, an agreement needs to be in place. Without an 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. Therefore we recommend going for courses at one of our partners within the ECIU Twin Programme, Double Degree programme, partners within the EU or outside the EU.

ECIU-programme

The University of Twente is partner of the ECIU Twin 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 ME TWIN programme, please indicate this in the Remarks field of the Application form for Courses abroad!

Double Degree ITA

At this moment the University of Twente has a Double Degree Program in Mechanical Engineering with Instituto Technológica the Aeronáutica ITA. For more information about this programme, please click here.

Partners inside the EU

The tables below shows an overview of the Erasmus partners of the faculty of Engineering Technology. A few notes:

  • For internships & research assignments you do not need to choose a partner university, this is only relevant for 'Courses abroad'.
  • The numbers in the table refer to the maximum available places for the spring semester for the connected study programmes. If the agreement is for multiple study programmes, then "0-2" means a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 2 places; the latter in case no-one from the other programme has shown any interest.
  • Some agreements are shared with other faculties
  • Some agreements are part of a special exchange programme
  • When you apply in Mobility Online, all partners will be available for selection. If you do choose a partner without available places, this university will be removed from your application before the selection procedure.

Partners outside the EU

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

  • (I) the first group contains the so-called UT-wide agreements. 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 chapter 6 of the Study Abroad Manual. Check out the non-EU partners at the International Office study abroad website to find out about the availability of spaces in the 2nd (= Spring) semester.
  • (II) the second group contains agreements which are shared by different faculties. The available places are divided among those faculties in another draw. Unfortunately it is not completely clear how many spaces are available for the 2nd semester.
  • (III) the third and final group contains the agreements with the faculty of ET only.

In the table below the number of places indicated for the group (I) agreements is the agreed number for a whole year. For group (II) and (III) the number indicates the available places for the 2nd semester.
