Opening Academic Year 2018 - with Minister Van Engelshoven

Students want to make the most of their program and their time as a student. How do students make sure they do? How does Tilburg University cater to these needs? How can the government contribute? The audience shared their ideas on these questions with us during the Opening of the Academic Year 2018.

On Monday, September 3, we celebrated the opening of the academic year, which took place in the new education and independent study center on our campus, CUBE.
