The CuriousU package consists of these components:
- A stay in our tent at the inspirational campus of the University of Twente
For those not comfortable sleeping in a tent for a week, we offer different accommodations for additional costs.
- Course participation
- Course materials
- A tent to sleep in (included: air mattress, flashlight, pillow and sleeping bag)
- Food (breakfast, lunch and evening meal)
- Free entry to the UT Sport Centre
The definite all-in-package will be confirmed in the first week of June 2021 and is subject to change based on the national and international Covid-19 regulations.
COURSEs are fully embedded in CuriousU
A tent (including air mattress and sleeping bag) is included in the standard fee. We do also offer rooms at the campus UPark hotel as an upgrade. Due to the Covid-19 regulations our accommodation options are restricted to tents and the hotel. Read more about the accommodation.
Our summer school is focused 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.
Courses and keynotes at CuriousU are all in English. Therefore, CuriousU is a great opportunity to practice your English language skills! Nevertheless we expect you to have a good command of the English language (e.g. IELTS 6.0, B2, TOEFL 80 internet based test or equivalent). These language requirements are your own responsibility and will enable you to follow the course lectures, write papers and participate actively in the discussions. Therefore applicants do not need to prove the suggested language skills in the registration process. If you doubt if you will be admitted you can use our question based admission tool prior to your registration.
Not included in the fee are personal expenses like travel costs (plane ticket, train ticket, etc.), travel and health insurance and other expenses, as well as accommodation other than a tent. For more details check our terms and conditions.
CuriousU does not offer any scholarships. Please ask the International Office of your (home) University if they can provide you with a scholarship.
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.
Please keep in mind this is subject to change according to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Our Sport Centre on campus has a number of sports halls, a large gym, a dojo and an indoor pool. On campus there is a brand new running track, an outdoor pool with water heated by solar energy, a variety of different sports fields and even an outdoor climbing wall. With your CuriousU ticket you can use all these activities for free!
