ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN INSPIRING WAY TO SPEND YOUR SUMMER?
In 2021 we expect to offer a blended summer school both on campus and online! Check out our preliminary summer courses programme and get inspired by the unique opportunity to expand your knowledge both on the wonderful University campus in the Netherlands and online from the comfort of your home. You wouldn’t want to miss it on 2-15 August, 2021.
Our 2021 summer school programme will be adjusted to the current situation and Covid-19 regulations. We are doing our best to offer a flexible solution which will combine online courses and on-campus courses, in other words CuriousU 2021 will be a blended summer school. The first week, 2 - 8 August, will be followed online from your home and the second week, 9 - 15 August, will be followed on-campus. Definite information on our format, courses and (social) programme will be confirmed in the first week of June 2021.

The CuriousU experience is an one-of-a-kind combination of a European summer school programme with international taste in combination with a festival theme at the leading entrepreneurial University of Twente. Our summer school blended package includes: academic courses, an (online) learning platform, social programme, food and beverages (for the on-campus part), inspirational speakers and accommodation at the campus of the University of Twente. We’ve got it all. The last edition of CuriousU was a huge success with participants from more than 50 countries! Check out CuriousU summer school and get inspired.

CuriousU is a summer school for international students, with a focus on Bachelor’s students in their second to last or last year, and entry level Master’s students, but is also open for anyone with broad interests and an inquisitive mind. So we do not have specific (C)GPA requirements.
If you doubt whether you will be admitted, you can use our question based admission tool prior to your registration.If you have doubts whether you will be able to attend the physical part of the programme, please send us an inquiry via firstname.lastname@example.org.
INSTRUCTION LANGUAGE: ENGLISH
Due to the international character of CuriousU the courses and keynotes are all in English. Therefore, CuriousU is a great opportunity to practice your English language skills!
We expect you to have a good command of the English language but these language requirements are your own responsibility and will enable you to follow the courses' lectures. Don't worry about communicating with the Dutch, by the way: 90% of the Dutch population understands and speaks English!
Please keep in mind this aftermovie was filmed pre Covid-19 and therefore is not a accurate reflection of the programme for 2021.

Our festival schedule gives you a good impression of how CuriousU is organized. Get your day off to an inspiring start by listening to one of our uplifting keynote speakers over breakfast. Once you’re all fired up, you’ll join in the morning session of your course for the day. That might be a workshop, a lecture or a project depending on the programme you choose. You’ll then join the other festival-goers for a themed lunch in an informal, interactive setting. After lunch you’ll dive back into your course. The evenings are devoted to the festival with plenty of fun and socializing.
NOTE: Our 2021 summer school programme will be adjusted to the current situation and Covid-19 regulations.
