What to expect?
When you are a student for day, you will experience what it is like to study at our university. Student for a day is different from an Open day, because you will follow one or more real lectures, and the day revolves around one particular program. This way you can get an idea of the themes that are covered within the program, and the way of teaching.
Current students and professors are there to answer you questions, and give you an insight in life at Tilburg University. An excursion to the city of Tilburg is sometimes part of the day as well, so you can get to know the city.
Through experiencing a day as a student, you can determine whether the program meets your expectations. A Student for a day-session is scheduled during the week and takes a day, so make sure to ask your school for permission to participate in time.
From April 7 until April 17, 2020 you can join the Student for a day-sessions of the program(s) you are interested in. Take a look at the overview below for the dates per program.
