University of Twente is the place to go in the Netherlands if you want a great technical education and you're interested in business start-ups. There are over 2000 start-ups affiliated with the uni, and the university facilitates many start-up related events as well as providing free services to students interested in founding their own start-up. The numerous student associations and sports clubs are also a fantastic way of getting to know other people from different parts of the uni.

The university has good facilities and nice learning ambience. The staffs are also really helpful and highly competent in assisting international students from adaptation phase until the graduation. The program offers integrative courses in field of management and governance which helps the students to build their perspective as a sustainability professional. I will recommend this program to anybody who is eager to gain knowledge, skills and competencies in environmental, energy and water domain.

Overall, the university is really good, having good facilities and good ambience. The aspects which are standing out, from my perspective, are the various specializations and areas available for the students to choose, during the bachelor phase, and a strong emphasis on training the students with the future in mind, using technology and preparing them for a future career. Of course there are also weak aspects, such as a poor organization, sometimes, but in the end, the good aspects are more dominant.

This University has 2 campuses in different cities (One in Enschede and the other one is in Leeuwarden). The most interesting thing about this university is that if you are an international student (especially on a scholarship) they make sure to reimburse your travel expenses made between both campuses. I liked the arrangements done on arrival at the airport. Furthermore, when you reach your room you get a university bag with a water bottle and some snacks. These gestures make learning so easy and friendly especially for international students. I will recommend this university to those students who want to work in water technology, energy management and Environmental Management.

One of the best universities in the technical aspect, the method of teaching is different than other universities, 50% theoretical and 50% practical all the knowledge is applied in a project at the final of the module.
