Social Work at Tilburg University

Published: 21st February 2020 Last updated: 27th February 2020

As a pilot, a social worker is present on campus for two half-day periods a week for additional help and support with problems you may encounter in everyday life that make studying more difficult. By signaling problems in time and quickly dealing with requests for help, study delays or dropouts can be avoided. Together with the student, the social worker examines what is going on and what is needed to solve the problem.

You can be referred to the social worker by your education coordinator, the Dean of Students or the student psychologist. If you want to make an appointment without referral,  send an email to For more information, please visit the page about tutoring.
