"About a year ago, I didn’t even know about Tilburg University but now I feel like I couldn’t be in a better place. Tilburg is the next best thing to being home!"
Thomas van GasterenBachelor's student
"The number of people studying sociology is relatively small, which means that you quickly get to know each other. There’s also a lot of room to ask questions in class."
Bas PijnappelBachelor's student
"Sociology is a broad program. In the first year, you also follow courses of other disciplines, such as psychology and economics."
