The third edition of the University of Twente’s CuriousU event will commence on Sunday 13 August. The summer school is set up like a festival and offers visitors a truly unique experience with a programme that includes music, academic courses, great food, inspiring lectures, sports activities and theatre. The language of tuition at the summer school is English. CuriousU 2017 will end on 23 August.

This year, extra courses have been added to the festival schedule and we are also expecting a record number of visitors: approximately 300.

Last year, 260 visitors from 40 countries came to the University of Twente campus for the festival.
