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.

Stay informed

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. You can use a maximum of 12 ECTS. 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 relevant examination.


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.

Administration costs

Per contract (can be more than one course) you pay administration costs only. For the administration costs for this academic year, please check the contract teaching website.
