TOPweek Tilburg University

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
