Exchange programs

Tilburg University welcomes hundreds of international exchange students each year. These students come to Tilburg within the framework of ERASMUS agreements and bilateral agreements with universities all over the world.

On Arrival

One of the reasons for studying abroad is to experience another culture. Of course there is no better way to achieve this than to integrate with the local community and culture. To help you adapt to and thrive in your new environment, we will assist you from the moment you arrive.

Arrival Days

Our International Office organizes special Arrival Days for all new international students. We will welcome you at Tilburg Universiteit train station and take you to Tilburg University. You will receive useful information about studying at Tilburg University and we help you arrange several practical matters, such as opening a bank account or register for our introduction week.

Introduction week

A good way to get to know Tilburg and Tilburg University is by participating in the introduction week called TOP Week, directly after the Arrival Day. This week with all kinds of activities - study-related, social, cultural, sport, parties and so on - will give you the opportunity to find out more about how to organize your academic (and social!) life at Tilburg University. During TOP Week, you will be assigned to a buddy, who will help you find your way around.
