News and events for students

If you want to send a message to students, the most suitable means to do so depends on the subject of the communication, the specific target audience and the impact of the message on this target audience. The student portal is the main channel of communication. All other means can be used as addition to the portal. Should you require advice on the correct means of communication, contact student-news@utwente.n
