Students applying for an exchange

We expect all students to attend the Study Abroad Fair and an information session (or watched the recordings on Canvas) before applying for an exchange, as most commonly asked questions are already answered there.

If you have questions that are not answered via the fair or the information session, you may contact us to set up an individual appointment. Please send an e-mail to studyabroad@tilburguniversity.edu, briefly listing your questions, the destinations you are interested in, and your availability. We will try to match you with the relevant coordinator for your destination(s). Appointments are currently scheduled as phone or Zoom calls.
