OAY on UTour live today at 15.00

Extraordinary times call for creative solutions

For the University of Twente, the Opening of the Academic Year is traditionally a valuable way to meet, reconnect and catch up. We honour this tradition and have decided to apply the motto 'on campus if possible, online if necessary' to our OAY 2020-2021 as well. We cannot wait to celebrate the Opening of the Academic Year 2020-2021 with you.

OAY on UTour, Monday 31 August 2020
Broadcast 15:00 - 15:45


Since March, the UT community has become even more conscious of what really matters: the connections we share with each other. We crave spontaneous interaction, meeting new people, sharing a laugh at the coffee machine, and talking passionately about the work we are doing. Togetherness is a vital element in developing talent and delivering knowledge to tackle the challenges of today and tomorrow.

The UT proudly presents the OAY on UTour, a unique digital tour of our campus. Our tour guide will be Lieven Scheire – half scientist, half comedian. Together with three UT students as his co-hosts, he will be meeting with staff and students and sharing a wealth of inspiring stories. And of course they will not be skipping OAY’s traditional items such as awards and music.
