Bachelor's Open Days

Are you searching for a Bachelor’s programme that will set you for a great future? At the University of Twente (UT), in the Netherlands, we are eager to help you. Our Bachelor’s Open Days − two sessions every year − are a great way of discovering which direction to choose. What’s more, they’re an experience you’re not likely to forget.

Bachelor's Open Days, 16 and 17 November

Our many English-taught Bachelor’s programmes and our unique profile and campus attract many non-Dutch students to the University of Twente. Find out if Twente is the place for you by visiting one of our Bachelor’s Open Days on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 November 2018 (if you want to get an idea of what a regular campus day is like here, opt for the Friday).

Take a study choice test to discover which bachelor programme suits you best.  

Programme Sessions

When signing up for an Open Day, you can also sign up for one or two information sessions about Bachelor’s programmes you’re interested in. These sessions consist of two parts each:

  • A general presentation of the Bachelor’s programme
  • A section where you’ll be taking a more in-depth look at the programme

If after the first hour you feel that the programme doesn’t meet your expectations, you won’t have to stick around for the second part. Instead, you might as well use the time to take in the Bachelor’s Info Festival, or join one of the continuous campus tours.

Campus Tours

Throughout the day you can participate in a tour of our beautiful campus. The only American-style campus in the Netherlands. Curious? Check out our interactive map.
