Tilburg University education

Buddy System

The success of studying in another country is largely dependent on how well you can adapt to and integrate into your new environment. To help you achieve this as quickly as possible, Tilburg University has set up a buddy system.

I*ESN, guidance by our international student association

During TOP week, all new international students will be assigned a buddy.

  • These buddies (senior Tilburg University students) are members of I*ESN, our International Student Association.
  • They will help you find your way around the campus, the city of Tilburg, and life in the Netherlands in general. Your buddy will help you settle in and tell you where to buy your first groceries.
  • Also, once every two weeks your buddies will organize a dinner for you.
