Student for a day


Are you interested in one of the University of Twente’s degree programmes? Would you like to know more about what to expect when studying here? Then sign up - from September till June - for our Student for a Day experience. As a student for a day, you’ll get a taste of student life at the University of Twente (UT) and gain first-hand experience of a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the programme and the university. 

As a student for a day you will:
  • Sit in on a lecture or seminar
  • Have lunch with students
  • Take a walking tour of the campus
  • Visit the study association and check out some textbooks

Sign up!

Will you graduate from high school this or next year, choose Sign up for Bachelor. Are you a Bachelor’s student or student of an university of applied sciences (HBO), click on Sign up for Master. You and your student guide will decide on a date for your tour.

Open Day or Student for a Day?

The UT offers various orientation activities. If you are interested in multiple degree programmes, then come to one of our Open Days. If you are interested in a specific programme, then sign up to be a student for a day. We advise international students to take advantage of the Student for a Day experience, because it allows you to choose your own date to visit our campus. Open Days, on the other hand, are held according to a fixed schedule.
