Academic Pre-Bachelor

Complete your Civic Integration requirements and prepare for a Bachelor’s level major at the same time.

What can you expect of the Pre-Bachelor?

  • During the Pre-Bachelor's year you will take various courses and modules - within the Dutch State Exam, program II - to complete your Civic Integration requirements.
  • You will also take a number of subjects, such as English and math, that will allow you to begin a university-level major well-prepared.
  • Attention is also given to selecting an educational course, studying skills and individual guidance counseling.
  • It is a fulltime program with a 40-hour a week study load.

The Pre-Bachelor starts on 28 August, 2017 and lasts until the end of June 2018.

After the Pre-Bachelor

If you pass the Pre-Bachelor's year, you will be admitted to a Dutch-language or English-language Bachelor at Tilburg University.

Some majors may have additional requirements such as specific secondary school subjects. These subjects will also be offered during the Pre-Bachelor's year. If you would like to attend another university or university of applied sciences, then the requirements of the institution of your choice are applicable.

When does the Pre-Bachelor suit you?

  • If you want to take the Dutch State Exam (NT2), program II
  • If you want to pursue an education at a university but do not have a secondary school diploma that is comparable to a Dutch vwo diploma.

The academic Pre-Bachelor in Tilburg gives you the possibility to complete both in one year of study.

Which entrance requirements do you have to meet?

A B1 level of Dutch is required to take the Pre-Bachelor's year.

You must also be able to perform academically at the equivalent of a Dutch havo 5 level.

This will be tested during the admissions procedure.
