For all future first-year students there is the Kick-In, the introduction at the UT, at the end of the summer holidays. During the Kick-In the new students will meet each other and learn about the university, the cities Enschede and Hengelo and a lot more. Also, the study will be the main subject in some of the days.


The Chemical Science and Engineering-specific part of the Kick-In is organised by the KIKSTart. The KIKSTart organises fantastic and fun activities, during which everyone will get to learn about the educational program and get to know their new fellow students. During the general part of the Kick-In, the KIKSTart will also be present to guide the new students and to provide them with all the necessary information.

After the Kick-In, the KIKSTart also organises the Kick-Out. This is a weekend at an external location where everyone can enjoy the Kick-In feeling one last time.

The KIKSTart 2023 consists out of:

Fiona Hafferl – Chairman
Lars Elstrodt – Secretary
Demi Goosen – Treasurer and Logistics
Andrea D’Silva – External Affairs
Martin Matej – Quizmaster
