Choice of study location

After receiving your letter of acceptance you will be asked to choose your main study location: Utrecht University or The University of Twente. Regardless of the location you choose, you will still have lecturers together with your fellow students of both locations at least once a week.

Practical matters

International students will receive information from the Admissions Office on how to arrange the necessary practical matters (e.g., housing, a Dutch bank account, health care insurance, visa etc.).

Welcome and Orientation Programme

All international students will receive an invitation for the University's Orientation Day. Part of the programme for this day consists of support and advice regarding practical matters, such as your registration with the city.
