Cultural courses


Discovering and developing your creativity while studying or working? You can! Are you a student or employee and in possession of a UnionCard or CampusCard? Then you can participate in the carefully and interestingly composed range of courses. From painting, photography and welding to cooking or oriental dance, everything is possible. Each quarter cultural courses are offered especially for you.


In keeping with the international character of our university, most courses are taught in English, at entry level. Through good contacts and cooperation with our partners, we can offer the courses at a very attractive price.


Every academic year, a nice and diverse selection of courses is composed in which you can discover your creative talent. Besides the basic and introductory courses, Vrijhof Culture also offers a number of follow-up courses to deepen your knowledge of the subject matter. The offer was created in cooperation with, among others, Kaliber Kunstenschool, Volksuniversiteit Twente and AKI/ArtEZ. Student Union and the Overlegorgaan personeel UT (OPUT) are important partners for Vrijhof Culture.
