Why should I study here?

Eindhoven University of Technology is a young university, founded in 1956 by industry, local government and academia. Today, their spirit of collaboration is still at the heart of our university community. We foster an open culture where everyone feels free to exchange ideas and take initiatives.

What are the admissions criteria?

A high school diploma that is equivalent to the Dutch VWO is required.  For US students, this requires an IB diploma and 4 APs with scores of 3+ or one year of college credits. One of the scores (for all programs )must be AP Calc. AP Physics is needed for all programs. EXCEPT for Applied Math, Computer Science, Data Science, Industrial Engineering, Psychology and Technology, and Sustainable Innovation. Chemical Engineering applicants also need AP Chem. Applicants from other countries can check the requirements for VWO level equivalency here. There are numerous fixed programs with a January deadline.

What is student life like?

Students can join the Student Sports Center for just 80 euros per year. They claim to have the most extensive sports facilities in all of the Netherlands, with an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, tennis courts, and almost 100 sports.  There are several student associations in Eindhoven, including those focusing on culture, social events, and sports (39 different sports associations). photography, theater, and international students. There are also study associations connected to your department of study that offer opportunities for academic and social events.  Many cultural events are arranged on campus at Stadium Generale, and the city of Eindhoven offers many cultural and social activities that appeal to students.

Scholarships & Funding

Non-EU students can apply for the 5000 euro Holland Scholarship.

Housing options.

Housing can be hard to find in town, but the school helps international students with the process.  Most of the housing options the school helps find are single bedrooms in a student house, which is shared by several intentional students. The cost is 350–475 euros per month.  Unlike other housing options, this is not limited to a year and can be for the duration of studies.  Another option is a furnished studio apartment.  The rent is 750–800 euros per month and is limited to one year.  Students must have their application in the international office at least two months before arriving (though earlier is better), and students are not able to view or approve the accommodation before their arrival.

Dining information

Most buildings on campus have cafeterias for lunch, with different menus at each location. There is also a coffee bar, a cafe, and two restaurants on campus.

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
