DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

TU/enable is aimed at students with a refugee background who are currently waiting for their status or have recently received their status.

TU/enable offers newcomers in the province of Noord-Brabant a chance to participate in a selection of regular undergraduate courses for free. Upon completion of the course a certificate of completion can be obtained.

In order to participate in one of the courses on offer, applicants are required to understand and speak (academic) English. Participants are expected to have a level of education which is equivalent to at least the Dutch ‘vwo-diploma’ (secondary school) or to have prior academic experience.

Each course is taught over a time period of eight weeks of lectures and assignments, after which an exam is conducted in the two weeks after that. Each course is expected to cost approximately 140 hours throughout those 8-10 weeks, consisting of lectures, time spend on assignments and preparation time for the exam.

All offered courses are regular undergraduate courses of the Industrial Engineering faculty, the Electrical Engineering faculty or the Industrial Design faculty of which the lecturers have agreed to open their courses to students with a refugee background.
