Introduction Honors Program by Rector Magnificus

Our Rector Magnificus is proud to welcome you as a Honors Program student.

Dear student,

Tilburg University is science-driven and student-centered, we strive to educate our students to become responsible thinkers who will make an impact and are ready for the future. And in that future, they will be faced with social challenges and wicked problems. In order to meet these social challenges, we must deepen our understanding of that society by acting across disciplines.

The Honors Program fits in perfectly with this. In the second and third year of the Bachelor’s program, ambitious students from different backgrounds take four interdisciplinary courses that are devoted to a social challenge. In the Honors Program you broaden your knowledge with other scientific disciplines. Upon successful completion of the four courses, you will receive a certificate that will be attached to your Bachelor's degree.

Are you that ambitious student? Have you successfully completed your first Bachelor year? Are you ready for an extra challenge in addition to your regular bachelor program? Are you curious and eager to learn? Then I invite and challenge you to participate in our excellent Honors Program!

Wim van de Donk,
Rector Magnificus and President of the Executive Board
