Initial registration - minors

This enrollment procedure is for academic year 2017-2018.

Minors are taken as part of a program at another institution. There are:

  • 1: covenant minor students
  • 2: individual minor students

The enrollment procedure differs for both types of students. The applicable procedure is detailed below:


1: Initial enrollment as a Covenant minor student

A covenant means there is an agreement between your institution and Tilburg University. Follow the steps below for your initial enrollment as a Covenant minor student:

Step 1: Registration

The contact person at your own institution will register you at Tilburg University by supplying a copy of your ID and your (e-mail) address. You do not have to take any action on your own with regard to particulars at Tilburg University.

Step 2: Information on the university IT network

The Student Administration at Tilburg University will enter your details into our system. If you are enrolling at Tilburg University for the first time, then you will receive an e-mail at your private address containing log-in details for accessing Tilburg University’s computer network.

Step 3: Proof of payment tuition (BBC)

Do you need to hand in a Proof of payment tuition (BBC)? If you still need to submit a BBC, you can request it from the institution where you have paid your tuition fees. Only a BBC from a Dutch educational institution (funded by the Dutch government) will be accepted.

Step 4: Enrollment Certificate

Once all enrollment requirements have been met and all the paperwork has been taken care of, you will receive an Enrollment Certificate by e-mail. You will then be officially enrolled at Tilburg University.

If you have completed the entire enrollment process before September / February 1, and if you do not receive your Enrollment Certificate by e-mail by mid-September / mid-February, please contact the Student Desk.

2: Initial enrollment as an Individual minor student

If you wish to take one or more minor(s) at Tilburg University on your own initiative, follow the procedure below. To enroll for an individual minor, please follow the following steps:

Step 1: Ask permission

For Bachelor's subject(s)

If you wish to take a minor in a Bachelor’s program, then you must first obtain the permission of your own institution. You must present a statement drawn up on original university letterhead, listing your name and the subject (or subjects) you wish to take.

For Master's subject(s)

If you wish to take a minor in a Master’s program, then you must first obtain the permission of your own institution. You must present a statement drawn up on original university letterhead, listing your name and the subject (or subjects) you wish to take.

You must also secure permission for a Master’s subject from the relevant school’s Examination Board. See Examination Boards by School.

Step 2: Enrollment

Enrollment in both Bachelor’s and Master’s subjects is done directly with the university. There is no need to use Studielink in these cases. Once you have secured the required permission(s), you can enroll by downloading, completing and returning the registration form.

You must submit a number of documents along with the form:

  • copy of your ID
  • original letter(s) of admission as mentioned
  • an original Proof of payment tuition (BBC). You can get this document from your own institution; this Proof of payment tuition exempts you from tuition fees at Tilburg University.
    Only a BBC from a Dutch educational institution (funded by the Dutch government) will be accepted.

Step 3: Information on the university IT network

The Student Administration at Tilburg University will enter your details into our system. If you are enrolling at Tilburg University for the first time, then you will receive an e-mail at your private address containing login details for accessing Tilburg University’s computer network.

Step 4: Enrollment Certificate

Once all the enrollment requirements have been met (Steps 1 and 2) and all the paperwork has been taken care of, you will receive an Enrollment Certificate by e-mail. You will then officially be enrolled at Tilburg University.
