5 Reasons why you should visit our university

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.

All of the activities during this event will be in English, except for those related to our Science Education & Communication and Teaching in Social Sciences programmes.



All of our Master’s programmes will be represented at the Master’s Info Festival. So do drop in if you need more information about a specific course. You will also find answers here to questions about accommodation, visa or application procedures. Our Dean of Students will be on hand to answer questions about career counselling, decision processes and financial issues, consequences and/or regulations. If you are a student of a university of applied science (‘hbo’ in Dutch), do visit our hbo stand to get your questions answered.


An interesting stand is the one showcasing the Twente Graduate School (TGS). TGS offers a wide variety of integrated Master’s and PhD programmes. These programmes are open to excellent Master’s students intending to develop a career in scientific research.


International and hbo students often have lots of tricky questions concerning transfer requirements and possibilities. If such is the case for you, be sure not to miss the special Q&A sessions that conclude the Open Day programme.

Just before the event you’ll be able to download our Campus App. With this app you’ll have everything handy, including a QR code you can use as your entry ticket (instead of the printable e-ticket that we’ll be emailing you), your personal day schedule and clever campus navigation. Navigation won’t be a problem anyway, as during the Open Days many students will be on hand to guide you where you want to go on campus.
