What is the Kick-In?

The Kick-In is the introduction time at the University of Twente. The Kick-In takes nine days and consists of two parts: a general Kick-In and your Faculty Kick-In. The Kick-In will take place from Wednesday the 23rd of August until Thursday the 31st of August 2017. 

General Kick-In
In the general Kick-In you will be introduced to your fellow students, the campus, the city of Enschede and the whole range of associations. You will be familiarized to the environment where you are about to live and study.
Faculty Kick-In
The Faculty Kick-In is mainly focused on your studies. You will get detailed information on your studies and guided tour in the building where you are about to follow most of your lectures and seminars. There is an opportunity to meet your study association, buy your study materials and receive your timetable. You will be informed about this session by the management of your study.
Both parts of the Kick-In are very useful for the rest of your study, so make sure you’re available! Please bear in mind that the Kick-In continues in the weekend.
