Study abroad during Theology

Tilburg University has exchange agreements with many universities within and outside of Europe. The School of Catholic Theology also has a list of specific universities Theology students can go to. It is possible to take courses at our partner universities, for example for your minor.

A valuable experience

Going on exchange is a big adventure: experiencing a whole new culture, language and way of life, including the ways in which different cultures view the world, and even how differently they approach university education. Immersing yourself in a new city with new people and studying at another university is an exciting and educational experience.

When can I go on exchange?

The program in Theology leaves room for following courses abroad. In the second and third year of your studies, you can go to a different country for one or two semesters and follow your electives / minor at another university.

Where can I go?

Tilburg School of Catholic Theology has agreements with for example the following universities:

  • Argentina, Buenos Aires, Pontificia Universidad Catolica Argentina (UCA)
  • Belgium, Leuven, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
  • Canada, Waterloo, University of Waterloo
  • Germany, Frankfurt am Main / Wurzburg / Erfurt (three universities)
  • Ireland, Maynooth, St Patrick's College, Maynooth
  • Norway, Oslo, MF Norwegian School of Theology
  • Ukraine, Lviv, Ukrainian Catholic University
