Opportunities for ambitious students
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 programs at Tilburg University certainly offer ample opportunity to do this, but for those students who feel ready to take on an extra challenge beyond their regular course of study, Tilburg University has a number of interesting possibilities.
First of all, there is the Honours Program: a supplementary program consisting of eight courses, four of which must be chosen by each participant to qualify for the Tilburg University Honours Certificate which is included with the Bachelor's degree.
Secondly, Tilburg University participates with the Venice International University, in a consortium of five European and five non-European universities, which together offer full semester programs in Humanities and Social Sciences on the island of San Servolo, which affords an excellent view of St Mark's Square in Venice. Each semester Tilburg University is entitled to send a selection of up to twenty of its best students to take part in this prestigious international program.
Although Tilburg University cherishes its most ambitious students, we realize that it is in their interests to seriously consider, continuing their studies at another internationally-oriented university elsewhere in the world after the successful completion of their Bachelor's program. To financially facilitate our best students in doing so, Tilburg University awards a number of Excellence Scholarships each year.
For students to participate in one or more of these 'extras', performance during the course of study in the Bachelor's program is decisive. These opportunities have been created because of our conviction that excellence is not the sole domain for 'nerds', but that striving for excellence is the raison d'Ítre of a university. Therefore, we ask each of you to excel. Tilburg University is ready to reward your efforts!
