Commercial opportunities

The Kick-In is University of Twente’s central introduction period. During nine days, around 2000 upcoming students are spectacularly introduced to a new environment where they will work, study, and live. Throughout this period, they will be guided by 3000 senior students. The Kick-In is organised on behalf of University of Twente by the Kick-In Committee. A sports day, a cultural festival, a grand open-air concert, and an information market are some examples of activities that will be on the programme this year.

During all these activities, future students will be introduced to all the beauty that the campus, the cities of Enschede and Hengelo, and for some, even the country of the Netherlands have to offer. Additionally, the Kick-In provides its participants with the opportunity to discover not only their new studies but also student life and independence.

For many of these students, the Kick-In marks the beginning of independence: the first time living away from home, the first time studying, and the first time fending for oneself. The Kick-In offers these students a flying start by providing them with the opportunity to become acquainted with both enjoyable and practical matters. Under the guise of "start young, stay wise," the experiences gained during this period will stay with the students throughout their time at university.

Your opportunities

For you, the Kick-In offers the ideal opportunity to actively profile your organisation among 5000 students. You can promote your organisation by, for example, placing your advertisement on various types of printed material. Additionally, we can display your logo on items such as crew clothing, participant wristbands, participant bags, or the website. If you wish to directly engage with students, you can have a stand at one of our informational festivals or actively promote during an activity where your name is associated through a sponsorship. There are also many other collaboration opportunities, including posting on our social media platforms (Facebook | Instagram) and suggesting your own ideas.

If you would like more information about the various opportunities, you can also view our online sponsorship brochure.
