Are you searching for a master's that will take you further in your field?
At the University of Twente, in the Netherlands, we are eager to help you. Our Master’s Open Day on Thursday 12 November is a great way of exploring your options. Get ready for a life-changing experience! Our many English-taught master’s and our unique profile and campus attract many non-Dutch students to the University of Twente.
During your registration, you can select two master's that interest you. You'll get to know everything about these programmes in two sessions. The first hour of a session is focused on the contents of the master. The next half hour is focused on providing information relevant to you specifically. If you're a university of applied sciences (HBO) student, you'd probably like to know more about pre-master's. If you're a bachelor's student, 'speed dating' with master's students might be interesting for you.
International students and students of universities of applied science (‘HBO’ in Dutch) often have questions concerning transfer requirements and possibilities. If such is the case for you, do visit the Info festival to get all your questions answered 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 happen to have any questions about the study programmes you have visited, drop by at our Study Information Centre.
We will be serving some delicious finger foods at the Infomarket, so do make sure to drop by!
Join one of our campus tours and discover our beautiful campus! Tours depart several times an hour from the Infomarket.
