Below you can see an overview of all important documents regarding your rights and obligations as a student.

  • Education and Examination Regulations (EER)

    All regulations regarding education have been written down in the document called the Education and Examination Regulations (EER or OER). A faculty-wide EER provides general guidelines and regulations, and there is a study-specific EER with more detailed information. These documents are very insightful if you wish to know your rights and obligations as a student or teacher, or if you want to get more information on transitional arrangements before contacting a staff member.

  • Student Charter

    The student charter governs the rights and duties of a student at the University of Twente. A programme specific version of this can be found in the Education and Examination Regulations (EER or OER) which is described above. The institutional section is applicable to all students and is renewed each year.

  • Soft Cut Regulation CreaTe to I-Tech

    SOFT-CUT REGULATION DUE TO COVID-19 

    The Bachelor before Master regulation was replaced with a Soft Cut Regulation last academic year due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Because of the continuing effects in study year 2020-2021, the University of Twente has decided to implement these more flexible transfer options again. On this page we will explain the criteria and procedure for bachelor students (CreaTe or other UT-bachelor programmes) and premaster I-Tech students (regular or Kies Op Maat programme), who want to start with the master Interaction Technology (I-Tech). It concerns a temporary change (academic year 2021-2022) of the criteria that you as a student have to meet to be allowed to start master courses in Interaction Technology. In case of questions or if you need help with the form? Please contact the study advisor Erik Bong.


    • Criteria

      In the regular situation, bachelor students need to have successfully finished all their courses (registered in Osiris) before they can be enrolled in the Master. If they would obtain a grade for an I-Tech Master course while being a bachelor student, this grade would be registered in the bachelor exam programme and cannot be transferred to the Master curriculum anymore. This means that the student cannot choose the same course as part of the master programme.

      In the new situation, more flexibility is provided by the implementation of the following temporary2 criteria for the transfer from bachelor to master programme:


      • CreaTe students
        • 30 or less EC of the Bachelor programme left;
        • YR 1 (B1) + YR 2 (B2) + CreaTe M11 Finished;
        • Bachelor Thesis finished before starting the Master Thesis;
        • Bachelor completed within one year after starting the Master;
        • Minor still unfinished is preferred over Bachelor Thesis unfinished. 
      • Other Bachelor students
        • 30 or less EC of the Bachelor programme left;
        • YR 1 (B1) + YR 2 (B2) + started with Bachelor Thesis
        • Bachelor Thesis finished before starting the Master Thesis;
        • Bachelor completed within one year after starting Master;
        • Minor still unfinished is preferred over Bachelor Thesis unfinished.
      • Premaster students
        • 6 or less EC of the Premaster programme left;
        • Premaster completed before starting the Master Thesis;
        • Premaster completed within one year after starting Master.
    • Procedure

      Students who wish to make use of this ‘soft cut’ regulation while starting with the master programme Interaction Technology, should report to the study advisor Erik Bong (e.j.bong@utwente.nl) and hand in an application form. On this form the student has to indicate:

      • Remaining EC’s in Bachelor or Premaster programme - which modules of the Bachelor programme are not yet finished;
      • The desired Master courses they would like to do;
      • feasible study plan including the planned date of the bachelor’s graduation. This study plan should show that finishing the bachelor thesis is the student’s priority.

      Additionally, an overview of the student’s study results (Student Progress Overview (SVO) from Osiris) has to be included and should be submitted together with the completed form to the study advisor. After approval, the programme management will take further administrative steps and the student can register for the desired courses through Osiris.
