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 the student life, student experiences, the Student Association Board and much more.

On the International Student’s website, you will find video interviews with international UT students. These videos focus on the experiences of international students with Dutch (academic) culture. The website also contains practical tips that may help you form a better idea of what to expect from Dutch (academic) culture. When you think you are ready for the UT, we invite you to take our online quiz and find out!
