Introduction Week (TOP Week)
Tilburg University advises you to participate in TOP Week as there is no better way to get to know Tilburg and your fellow students! TOP Week is your ticket to Tilburg. It takes place from August 23, until Friday, August 27, 2021. The program of this year’s TOP Week has been influenced by COVID-19 and is therefore different than previous years.
What is TOP Week?
Tilburg Orientation Program, TOP, organizes the introduction week for all new incoming students in Tilburg before the start of the spring semester.
- You immediately get to know Tilburg and student life well. That way, you don't have to look on your own for what things you want to do in addition to your studies.
- TOP Week 2021 will take place from August 23 until August 27.
What to expect?
Get acquainted with the Dutch culture, the city, various associations, and fellow students. Not only from your own study program, but also from other programs at Tilburg University.
Join a week full of activities for students who are new in Tilburg: discover the city of Tilburg, visit a museum or participate in a city tour. Get to know the student life of Tilburg by visiting student associations, sport activities and parties at study associations.
All students will be divided into groups with students from all over the world, based on your study program. The whole week mentors (second or third year students) will guide you.
Are you already excited to participate?
Due to the corona crisis, TOP Week will be held with placed activities as well as flow-through events. As such, all physical activities will be in line with the guidelines of the RIVM (Dutch Health Organization). The program consists of a mix of social and informative activities, which can be found on the TOP website and socials.
