About

The Educational Science and Technology programme is offered by the University of Twente.  The scope is wide: from the instruction of young children in primary school to developing interactive materials for vocational education, and from assessing the quality of schooling and school performance to talent and leadership development, and in-company re-training.

As an Educational Science and Technology student, you will take a high-tech approach to your studies while never losing sight of the human dimension.

You will study alongside highly motivated students of different nationalities who come from a fascinating mix of backgrounds. In addition to working individually, you will cooperate closely on group assignments and benefit from frequent and informal interaction with staff.
