Application instruction Exchange

Congratulations! You have been nominated by your home university to study at Tilburg University. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you. In order to start with your registration, we kindly ask you to complete the online application form.


Remember that complete applications must be submitted by the appropriate deadlines (15 May for Fall and Full Year students, 15 October for Spring students). When the deadline has passed, your opportunity to study at Tilburg University for that semester may have passed, so please submit your application on time!

Creating your account and start your application

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

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 by reading the instructions on the first page of our online system. 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. We therefore not require you to send us your application through regular mail.

In addition, you will also use this system to indicate and finalize your study plan, and if applicable, start up 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 final study plan and your visa application.
