Are you in your (almost) last year of secondary school and interested in our Bachelor’s? Be a student for a day!
Sign up for a Student for a Day experience, come to the campus in Enschede and get your own personal introduction to student life at the University of Twente (UT). You’ll get a taste of student life, discover our campus and gain first-hand experience from a first or second-year student of a bachelor's programme.
It's also an option to get an introduction online via Skype, especially useful for study seekers living abroad. Do you prefer this? Please indicate this option in the registration form. A fun, additional option is to do a Campus Tour together. Not only will you get a good impression of what the campus has to offer, but you will also discover the buildings and labs you will frequently visit during the bachelor's of your choice.
Whichever of the options you choose, you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the programme and the university.
In order to cope with a fifth wave of Covid infections, the Netherlands is in lockdown since Sunday 19 December. This implies that until 14 January 2022 you cannot attend a Student for a Day at our campus. We will contact you for an (online) alternative.
Still, you can register below for a Student for a Day after 14 January 2022. In case the lockdown is extended beyond 14 January and the Student for a Day still cannot take place on campus, the Student for a Day will probably take place online. We will contact you about this at all times.
