What do you get in return
The University of Twente and the Student Union greatly appreciate activism. They are of the opinion that extracurricular activities complement the educational program and perfect the academic and personal development of the student The UT facilitates this in the form of a financial reward through the Activsm Grants. This is an amount that you get back from the university, if you have not been able to study for a certain number of months due to having been involved in, for example, organising a study tour.
The learning experiences that students derive from their activism are also appreciated through a physical activism recognition, which is extended by the Student Union and the University of Twente. This recognition consists of a certificate issued by the Executive Board. This certificate is a recognition for your activism, which is signed by the Rector Magnificus of the UT and the portfolio manager Academic Competencies of the Student Union.
