Are you an outstanding student? do you want to be challenged?

The Honours programmes of the University of Twente (UT) offer outstanding and motivated VWO, Bachelor, and Master students an opportunity to challenge themselves both academically and socially. All these programmes have a distinctive profile: High Tech Human Touch. This means that unique combinations of technology, engineering, and social sciences are embraced to respond effectively to challenges and questions posed by society.

Pre-U Honours Programme
UT offers talented Dutch vwo students an Honours programme of 1,5 years. In the first year, the students follow three modules of academic training (philosophy of science, scientific methods, and academic writing) and two masterclasses of their choosing. In the last half year, students are guided in conducting their Honours Research.

Bachelor Honours programme
An extracurricular broadening programme of 30 EC in which ambitious and motivated students are challenged to enrich their knowledge, skills, and cooperations outside their own discipline. Each student follows one of the multidisciplinary tracks in which they can develop themselves in a setting comprised of passionate teachers and diverse students.

The PLUS and STAR programmes are intracurricular deepening and broadening programmes that allow students to excell in their own field.

The Technology Liberal Arts & Sience (ATLAS) programme is a full time honours programme that both broadens and deepens the student's knowledge.

Master Honours programme
An extracurricular broadening programme of 15 EC in which talented, intellectually interested and motivated students are challenged to enrich their knowledge, skills, attitude and experiences outside their own discipline. Students can choose from three tracks, each having a unique character and developmental goals.

In the Transdisciplinary Master-Insert, you work in transdisciplinary teams on addressing complex societal challenges.
