Visit the Bachelor's Open Days 2017

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,17 and 18 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 17 and Saturday 18 November 2017 (if you want to get an idea of what a regular campus day is like here, opt for the Friday).

Come and explore one of the world's leading research universities

The University of Twente is a leading international research university in the Netherlands. We provide high-quality teaching and research with an approach we call ‘High Tech Human Touch’, uniquely combining technology and social sciences. Our beautiful campus is ideally located in the city of Enschede, near the German border in the east of the Netherlands. Roughly centred between Paris, London and Berlin, Enschede is just two hours from Amsterdam by train.

5 Reasons why you should visit our university

  • We offer an extensive range of highly acclaimed Bachelor’s programmes, many of which are English-taught (to make sure, check out the web pages of the programmes you’re interested in)
  • We stand out from other universities because of our unique ‘High Tech Human Touch’ approach, which integrates social sciences and engineering
  • As the Netherlands’ most entrepreneurial university we’ll gladly help you launch your own startup (we’ve helped launch 900 already)
  • Our vibrant, green campus is the only American-style campus in the Netherlands
  • Our high international ranking places us among the world’s top universities



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.


Not sure which of our Bachelor’s programmes would best suit you? Then a study choice check at the Bachelor’s Info Festival might be just the ticket. The Festival is open all day. Besides information about our Bachelor’s programmes you can learn all about accommodation on our campus or in the city, or about master classes you could decide to take as a student at the University of Twente. Our Dean of Students will be on hand to answer questions concerning finances, the new Dutch student financing scheme called ‘studievoorschot’, healthcare insurance, looking for accommodation, and the role parents can play in helping you decide what to study. Our Student Information Centre will also be present to answer all your questions concerning studying at the University of Twente in general and our programmes in particular. You can even get a taste of some exciting science experiments!
