Incoming Exchange Program

Tilburg University welcomes about 650 international exchange students each year. These students come to Tilburg within the framework of ERASMUS agreements and bilateral agreements with universities all over the world.

Information concerning coronavirus

Tilburg University is closely following the developments concerning the coronavirus and will provide any updates here. It is in contact with the Municipal Health Service (GGD) and National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).

Please note

  • All procedures and dates given on Tilburg University websites and in communication by the Study Abroad & Exchange Team are correct as of their date of publication. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, both the procedures and dates may change. Tilburg University will update students as soon as possible, if global, national or university regulations require changes to the procedures and dates given.
  • All costs incurred by incoming and outgoing exchange students with respect to their study abroad semester are at own risk. Tilburg University cannot be held responsible if costs are incurred by students and, due to regulations on global, national or university level regarding COVID-19, the exchange is cancelled, delayed or otherwise modified.

An exchange at Tilburg University

If your university is an exchange partner of Tilburg University, you can apply for an exchange period at the International Office of your own university. Tilburg University does not offer a free mover program for exchange students.

As an exchange student you do not have to pay a tuition fee at Tilburg University, but you will continue to pay tuition to your home institution. You can choose from a wide selection of courses (Tilburg University offers over 300 English taught courses per semester).

Courses for exchange students

Exchange students can choose courses from all schools of Tilburg University, as long as you meet the specific requirements of a course.

Insurance for incoming exchange students

Dutch law requires all international students to be covered by appropriate medical insurance for their entire stay in the Netherlands. In addition to medical insurance, we strongly recommend you to have liability and travel insurance, as well. You should arrange your insurance before your arrival in the Netherlands, instead of waiting until a situation that requires insurance arises.

Arranging insurance is your own responsibility, but we can provide information to guide you where possible. For example, Tilburg University recommends the Aon Complete+ Insurance package to all international students. This covers medical, travel and liability insurance, including conditions that pre-existed before your arrival in the Netherlands.
