Prior to Night University in November, it will be present at several venues outside the campus. To reinforce Tilburg University’s relationship with the city and to establish sustainable partnerships in Tilburg and beyond, Night University On Tour will be present at Festival Mundial at the end of June and at the Dear Future, Festival, end of September.

Our University wants to show by means of valorization and knowledge transfer what it has to offer in the broadest sense of the word. Therefore we are present outside the campus, to seek the connection with the city and society: that is Understanding society, too.

It also has and educational target: Mundial wants to educate its visitors about styles and cultures of music and let them discover new things. Besides that, world issues play a central role.
