Student for a day - Aiming for a Bachelor

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 our Student for a Day experience and get your own personal introduction to student life at University of Twente (UT). As a student for a day, you’ll get a taste of student life at the 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.

  • Option 2) Skyping with a student & Campus Tour

    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!

    You can also arrange a date for a Campus Tour with your mentor. During this tour, you will not only get a good impression of the UT but also of all the things the Campus has to offer you. 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) Physical Student for a Day visit (currently not available)

    currently not available

    If you register for a student for a day at the programme of your choice, you will be paired with a student who is following the programme himself. You have a short skype conversation beforehand to get to know each other and to set a date for the day on campus.

    During a Student for a Day visit, you meet the student with whom you had a skype conversation, he/she will guide you on this day. You take part in a lecture and/or practical, you get to know the study association of the programme, your mentor shows you the books that are used during the study, you have lunch together, and of course, you get a tour of the campus and visit the buildings and labs that are important for your chosen programme. Of course, you can also visit things that suit your interests, discuss this with your mentor.
