If you choose to register for the "Mix and Match"course you are mixing the courses mentioned above and you will get a certificate but not the 2 ECTS. Students following the English for academic purposes course will get a certificate and 1.5 ECTS.

Mix and match conditions
  • Mix & match participants can decide every day which course sessions they want to attend.
  • The majority of all course sessions within CuriousU are open for mix & match students, but there are circumstances where mix & match students cannot join a specific session. Sometimes, we have a contest or presentations, which had to be prepared carefully in previous sessions. If you missed these earlier sessions, it is not possible to join these specific sessions. In each course a limited number of seats is available for mix and match students.
  • Mix & match students also get ECTS credits if they use all available slots, just like the regular course participants who need to follow all course sessions in order to get their ECTS credits.

Credits and Certificate

Certificate of attendance

You will be awarded with a 2 ECTS certificate of attendance for actively participating and successfully completing the CuriousU summer school. There is an exception for our language courses which have 1 to 1.5 ECTS depending on the course. The number of credits you earn will also be listed on the certificate of attendance. Please note that this is not an official University of Twente transcript, as the University of Twente's summer school courses are not part of an official degree.

Credits (ECTs)

Student workload at Dutch universities is expressed in ECTS. ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, a system widely used throughout the European Union. In the Netherlands, each credit represents 28 hours of work. We would like to point out that recognition of credits is at the discretion of your home institution (please contact the International Office of your home university).
