Knowledge vouchers for alumni
As a graduation gift, Tilburg University grants you four knowledge
vouchers when you obtain your master's degree. They can be used for all contract teaching courses, up to a
total value of 12 ECTS.
The vouchers are valid for all designated courses within the contract
education system, which includes more courses than those offered
by your own School. Please note that courses offered are part of the
regular study curricula, hence you will be sitting alongside current
students. The vouchers cannot be used for language courses.
Valid for 5 years
Knowledge vouchers are personal and non-transferable, so you can use no more than four vouchers per master degree. They are valid for five
years and should be redeemed at the Student Administration Desk.
Please note that the total value of the four vouchers is 12 ECTS. This
means that if you have only one voucher left, you must use it for a
course worth maximum 3 ECTS: you cannot take a course worth six
points and pay the difference. Upon registration for a contract course,
you will be given confirmation of the period in which you must start
and complete the course, including any practical requirements and the
If you successfully complete the exam, you will receive a certificate. As a contract student, you will also be able to use all the student facilities with your old student card.
Per contract (can be more than one course) you pay administration costs only. For the administration costs for this academic year, please check the contact teaching website.
