There are no tuition fees or administrative fees for participating UCU students. Please note that you have to bear the costs for any course materials and books if a course requires it. Please contact the Tilburg University Study Abroad & Exchange Office (see below) if you cannot pay for or access any materials, so we can assist in finding a solution. You may also inform your lecturer first to ask for advice.

Scheduling conflicts - How do I find out?

You should check ahead of the start of classes for scheduling conflicts with courses you take at home.

The fall 2022 courses schedules will only be published in the course catalogue around mid-August (spring 2023 courses in mid-December). (1) Click on “Courses”, (2) search for your course, (3) click on “Schedule” in the upper right corner of the course view, (4) see the weekly scheduling for classes and potentially additional working groups by clicking through the week schedule.
