At the University of Twente, English is the primary formal language of communication. The choice of English as the primary language is not a goal on its own, but a mean for the university to realise its ambitions: excellence and cooperation in an international environment. The language of the organization is an instrument to function as an international organization.
Inclusiveness is an important value within the language policy. The University of Twente aims to ensure a working environment in which everyone can unfold, broaden one’s horizons and communicate with each other. A starting point is that all formal communications are accessible to everyone.
