Student for a day (individual orientation days)

The Student for a Day option is for both bachelor's and master's programmes. For master's the focus is on Skype calls (online), for bachelor's the focus is a campus-experience when possible. Alternatively, there is the option for a Skype call when an on-campus meeting is not possible.

What

Bachelor's & master's Student for a Day

Target group

Prospective Dutch and international students

Date

October – June

As a student for a day, prospective students get a taste of student life at UT and gain first-hand experience of a bachelor’s or master’s programme by attending lecture or sitting in at workshops or practicals. They will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the programme and the university to their buddy (meeloopbegeleider). Being a student for a day supplements a visit to an open day and focuses on personal contact. It is recommended for students after visiting an open day.
