Application Process

You received an invitation by email to apply for your exchange. In this invitation, you found a link to our online application system where you can create your own account.

Important: please note that you should register yourself as an exchange student, not as a degree student! Always use the link from our email to enter your online application. This is the only link you need to register yourself at Tilburg University.

After you created an account, you can start with your application. The estimated time to complete your online application is 30 – 45 minutes. You will be able to submit your application after you completed all the necessary steps. Don’t worry, you do not have to complete all steps at once. You can take your time and log in every time you would like to work on your application. All documents that have to be included to your application can be submitted through our online system.

You will also use this system to start and finalize your visa application. After submitting your online application, you will be asked to log into your application again at a later stage to work on your visa application.


We expect all applications to be submitted by the appropriate deadlines. Applications which are submitted after the below deadline will not be considered. 

  • Fall and Full Year applications: 15 May
  • Spring applications: 15 October
