      If you are found eligible, you will receive an e-mail together with the admission letter and pro forma invoice. The e-mail will also contain a link to the “Offer of Admission”. Please respond to the Offer of Admission. As soon as you have accepted our offer, you will receive further information about how to finalise your application. If applicable, you will also receive information about visa and/or housing.

      (*) A certified photocopy is a hard copy with an official stamp and signature on each page (if applicable also on the reverse side) to verify that it is a true photocopy of the original document. This official stamp and signature may be from a notary or your school or university. Photocopies or scans of the documents mentioned above are not legal proof, and therefore they cannot be accepted for enrolment. All documents submitted become the property of the University of Twente and will not be returned to you.

    • Visa & housing


      Admitted ITC students are assisted with arranging visa formalities through a fasttrack procedure by ITC. Students cannot apply for a visa themselves. For more information visit the visa information webpage.


      ITC provides accommodation in well-furnished rooms at the ITC International Hotel (IIH) as an integral component of a study at ITC. For more information about housing visit the housing and accomodation webpage.

    • Prepare your stay

      Many things in the Netherlands may be different from your home country, like climate, traffic, food, clothes and religion. To help you prepare for your UT study experience, we have created a website where you can find more information on student life, student experiences, the Student Association Board and much more.

      On these web pages, we have gathered all information that will help you get ready for the Netherlands and study at our Faculty.
