Keuzegids Universiteiten 2020: Six Tilburg University Bachelor’s programs rank # 1

Published: 27th November 2019 Last updated: 16th March 2020

The Keuzegids Universiteiten 2020 shows that students have ranked six Tilburg University Bachelor’s programs as the best in their field. In the annual Keuzegids Universiteiten, all academic Bachelor’s programs are compared, largely based on student satisfaction measured through the National Student Survey (NSE). In the overall ranking of all Dutch universities, Tilburg University is ranking sixth.

Across all Bachelor’s programs, Tilburg University scores 62 points in the new edition of the Keuzegids. This score is somewhat lower than in previous editions. The national average of the assessments of all universities is 61.9. Tilburg University’s score is thus almost equal to this national average. In this year’s Keuzegids, the best scoring university is again Wageningen University, with 74 points.

Economics and Theology top programs
With a total score of 78, the Economics Bachelor belongs to the top of Dutch academic education. This program has therefore been awarded the ‘top program’ quality label by the CHOI (Center for Higher Education Information, the editor of the Keuzegids) – as in previous years. The Theology Bachelor achieved a total score of 80 and may therefore from now on also use the 'top program’ quality label.

Six Bachelor’s programs best in their field
In total, six of the 20 Tilburg University Bachelor’s programs that were assessed achieved a # 1 position in the ranking in their field. They include the Bachelor’s programs of Communication and Information Sciences, Theology, Tax Law, Economics, Tax Economics, and Global Law. Philosophy also scored well, with a second position among eight programs.
