Application

The graduate site of the University of Twente is the one and only place to apply for a master programme! This site does not only give you information about the tracks itself, but also about practical stuff such as fees and scholarships and so on. Please read that information carefully before asking questions. You’ll find the general and programme-specific admission requirements there as well.
