For some courses (f.i. linear algebra) you will need a dictate, which you can buy at the Unionshop (Bastille).


The student administration uses Osiris for registration of courses. You are responsible for registering for each course before the start of the quartile.


The University of Twente uses Blackboard to inform you about the content of each course. After registering for a course in Osiris  you will receive access to the blackboard site of that course. Attention: some premaster courses are part of a bachelor module and you will only need to focus on the information restricted to that part, f.i. Engineering Thermodynamics.

Premaster finished, what do I have to do?

In order to be admitted to the master you have to finish your premaster within a year, this is usually in March when the last re-exams are offered. As soon as you finish you premaster the premaster coordinator will inform the student administration that your premaster registration can be changed into a master registration.
