Q: Is Twente Pathway College teaching on campus?

A: Twente Pathway College will probably be offering face-to-face teaching on campus in September 2021. This allows students to maximally benefit from physical presence. Both in learning and in student life. Our students will return to solid hybrid teaching models, as we have successfully introduced in September 2020. In all cases, social distancing and extra hygiene measures will continue to be in place. The College will continue to follow the approach of the Dutch government and the guidelines set by University of Twente. A safe and healthy learning environment for our students and staff remains the highest priority.

Q: Can I visit the campus during this time?
A: Unfortunately, you are not able to visit the campus at present in line with government advice. However, please visit our new video to get a taste of the student life in Enschede, the campus and TPC. We hope to welcome you to Enschede soon!


Q: Will there be events that I can join online to learn more about the University of Twente and the Pathway College Twente?
A: Check our website www.twentepathway.nl and social media for information about online events and webinars about studying at TPC, student life, admissions and other topics our future students might have questions about.

Q: Can I speak to any current students to find out more about studying at TPC?
A: Soon we will announce on our website and social media webinars in which you can meet our current students and ask them about their experience studying in TPC and the life in Enschede.
Are you curious to be in touch with one of University of Twente's students? Register for a Skype meeting with a student. 

Q: I want to study/have an offer for September 2021, what’s next?
A: The initial step is to apply via our website www.twentepathway.nl and we will send you an offer for September 2021, if you are eligible to study with us.

To secure your place, you must sign and return to us the offer signed. Also, we request you to pay 50% of your course fee as indicated in your offer letter. You will then pay the remainder of your course fee before the start of your visa application. 


Q: What if I cannot take an IELTS or TOEFL test?
A:  Students applying for Twente Pathway College are requested need to demonstrate proof of their English language ability. It is one of our entry requirements and also required to obtain a Dutch visa. During the Covid-19 pandemic some students may face difficulties in taking a regular IELTS or TOEFL test.
ETS has expanded availability of at home testing for the TOEFL iBT® test. The testing system is now available in most countries world-wide. The University of Twente and Twente Pathway College approve this version of TOEFL iBT tests  for which you can register online.
