Your pathway to the University of Twente

Future-proof education in the Netherlands

Dutch education is based on student-led learning, open dialogue and hands-on experience, resulting in one of the most innovative and forward-thinking systems in the world.

The University of Twente’s unique teaching model (abbreviated TOM in Dutch) focuses on hands-on, project-based, and student-driven learning. At the UT, we distinguish three different roles you can take on in a team or as a professional: researcher, designer or organizer. Throughout your studies, we’ll help you discover which one best suits you.

Twente Pathway College is your on-campus route into this forward-thinking University located in the heart of Enschede.
