Tilburg University Summer School 2020

Date: Time: 10:00 Location: Campus Tilburg University

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic that is currently affecting the whole world, Tilburg University has come to the difficult decision to postpone its Tilburg University Summer School 2020 in its original form to summer 2021. For two of the courses we can offer an online alternative.

While we are very disappointed not to be going ahead with our original program, the decision was made considering the well-being and safety of our students and our teaching and administrative staff. We truly regret to inform you about this decision, as a lot of time and effort was already invested in the organization of these summer courses. Given the evolution of this pandemic, we are however convinced that this was the only right decision to take.

Online offer Tilburg University Summer School 2020

Tilburg University Summer School will be offering two online courses at a reduced rate during edition 2020:

Justice for Victims of Conflict-related Sexual Violence and Human Trafficking? (6 ECTS)
Understanding Data with R: a hands-on workshop towards becoming a data-analyst (3 ECTS)

We suggest to interested students to submit their application and follow the admission procedure to make sure to have their spot reserved for one of the alternative online courses.

Cancellation policy

When successful participants do not wish to take part in any of our online offered courses, they will be fully reimbursed. Please note that costs made for travelling, visa and accommodation etc. are not reimbursed by Tilburg University.

We would like to thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. We hope you and your families remain healthy and connected in any possible way and that we are able to welcome you in one of the online courses or next year in Tilburg during edition 2021. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us on
