University and Embassy try to attract students from the west


The University of Twente and the Embassy for the Twente region in Amsterdam are collaborating to attract students from classes 5 and 6 VWO to continue their studies in Twente. In order to achieve this, a so called “Pop-up University” is being set up where several activities are being organised for specific student groups.


During the year, the University of Twente has two “open-days” where (incoming) students can get to know the University. The number of students attending the University in 2016 has increased with 25% against the previous year. With this increase, Twente University belongs to one of three largest growing University in the Netherlands. The main reason for this increase is the additional inflow of foreign students. From these same numbers, it appears that students from the west of the Netherlands is limited.


“We’ve noticed that students from the west of the Netherlands don’t really focus on other parts of the country such as the east. Which is a shame. Since we have a number of study courses that are not available in the western part of the Netherlands”, says the spokesman of the University of Twente, Erik van Dijk. “With this Pop-up University we try to show the students the possibilities we have in the East-Netherlands.”


Twente Embassy brings Twente closer

The first activity of the Pop-up University will take place at the Twente Embassy located on the Herengracht 450 in Amsterdam. “Right in the city centre, and approachable”, says director Danny the Vries of the Twente Embassy. “At this location, students can have a taste of studying in Twente, close to home. This ties in with what we are trying to accomplish at the embassy here in Amsterdam. To bring Twente closer.”
