About

At Tilburg University, our mission is to inspire students and faculty members to reach their full potential, and in doing so, reap a positive impact on the society around them.

Our educational programmes instil a broad social awareness in our students along with critical personal and professional skills. Learning and development are offered at all career levels. Research endeavours aim to advance the frontiers of knowledge on issues and subjects of direct value to society and are actively disseminated and applied within the community with this objective in mind. We play an active part in the local community and that of the region, the Netherlands and the entire world, maintaining close contact at all levels.

While our culture is rooted in the Christian and humanist traditions of our European heritage, we are open to all cultures and traditions, and actively invite students, academics and practitioners from all corners of the world to participate in our activities. We offer opportunities for academic pursuit and reflection regardless of personal philosophy. We strive to maintain a very prominent position in all our specialist areas of academic endeavour from economics and business administration to law, the social sciences, the humanities and theology. In many fields, we are already ranked among the top institutes in Europe. We intend to build upon our established reputation in every way possible.

Accreditations

Student life

Tilburg University is eager to offer challenges to students who want to get the most out of themselves and their student days. The regular study programmes at of Tilburg University certainly offer ample opportunities to do this, but for those students, who feel ready to take on an extra challenge beyond their regular course of study, we would like to set out a number of summarizes various interesting possibilities.

First of all there is the Honours Programme: a supplementary programme consisting of eight courses, four of which must be chosen by each participant to qualify for the Tilburg University Honours Certificate to be attached to the Bachelor's degree.

Secondly, Tilburg University participates in the Venice International University, a consortium of five European and five non-European universities, which together offer full semester programmes in Humanities and Social Sciences on the island of San Servolo, which affords an excellent view of San Marco Square in Venice. Tilburg University is entitled to send each semester a selection of up to twenty of its best students to take part in this prestigious international programme.

Although Tilburg University cherishes its most ambitious students, we realize that it is in their interest to seriously consider, after the successful completion of their bachelor's programme in Tilburg, to continue their studies at another internationally-oriented university elsewhere in the world. To financially facilitate our best students in this process, each year Tilburg University awards a number of Excellence Scholarships.
