Applying to Tilburg University is free and easy. You can apply via our online application system, and in most cases you will not need to send us any official documents until you know whether you are accepted for the program of your choice.
Our programs have a rolling admissions policy. This means that you can submit your application any time between October 10 and the deadline of May 1. We will assess your application as it comes in, and give you an answer within a few weeks.
The application deadline is both for Studielink and the application package. For some programs, applications will be considered after the May 1 deadline, but it depends on availability of places and work load of the admissions office at that time.
Regardless of the type of program you are applying for, applying is straightforward and there are no additional costs involved. We encourage anyone who is interested in one of our programs to submit an application. This is the best way to figure out whether you are eligible for a program.
