Application and admission Bachelor's programs Tilburg University

Are you interested in one of our Bachelor’s programs? We welcome both national and international students, and encourage you to submit an application. Applying for our programs is free, and can easily be done online. It is the best way to find out whether you are accepted for the program of your choice.

Application requirements

To be admitted to a Bachelor's program at Tilburg University, you will need to meet several application requirements:

In addition, we want to get to know more about you in order to determine whether a certain program is the right fit for you. Therefore, we may require you to write a motivation, submit a CV or essay, and there could be an interview procedure. Because of these slight differences between programs, it is necessary to always navigate to the admissions page for the program of your choice. Make sure to read the instructions thoroughly before you start your application.

Application process

When you are ready to apply via our application procedure, you need to do so in two places:

  1. MySAS, Tilburg University’s online application system
  2. Studielink, the Dutch national registration system for admission to higher education

Tilburg University has a rolling admissions process . This means your application will be assessed as it comes in, and you will know whether you are (conditionally) accepted within a few weeks. 
The longer you wait to submit your application, the busier our admissions offices will be. It will be more difficult to upload missing documents or make changes to your application, and it will take longer to hear the final result. Therefore we encourage you to apply earlier rather than later, and not leave your application to the last moment. 

Application deadlines

For our programs, the application deadline is May 1. In some cases, this application deadline is extended. This is sometimes done for an exceptionally strong candidate or in case there is still room in the program. Extended deadlines only apply to students who do not require a visa. As the procedure to acquire a visa takes several months, it is not possible to apply after the stated deadline when you require a visa.
