Student for a day - Aiming for a bachelor's

Are you in your last year or two of high school and interested in one of the University of Twente’s Bachelor’s programmes?

Sign up for a Student for a Day experience and get your own personal introduction to student life at the University of Twente (UT). As a student for a day, you’ll get a taste of student life at UT and gain first-hand experience from a first or second-year student of a bachelor's programme. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the programme and the university. 

  • Option 1) Skyping with a student

    Do you want to know everything about being a student at the UT? Talk to a student of the programme of your choice and ask him/her everything you want to know.  Our students love to share their experiences!  Questions about the study programme, guidance within the study programme, housing, living as a student, lesson materials, what does a lesson schedule look like, etc. You will find out everything!

    Register for the programme of your choice and the student (mentor) will contact you to arrange a date.

Of course, the important buildings and labs of your chosen programme will be shown, if you are a sportsman, your mentor will show you the sports facilities. So inform your mentor about your interests and you will get a guided tour that suits you.

  • Option 3) Student for a Day on campus
