I am a second year BSc Human Resource Studies student at Tilburg University. The quality of education is very high. The teachers are easy accesible, but there is difference between the quality of a major, minor or master teacher. The study improves independecy and they are stimilating extracurricular activities. There are a lot of international students, but to my opinion, they don’t blend very well with the Dutch students. Overall I love the University with all her opportunities, but I dislike the city of Tilburg (I live in Nijmegen).
The quality of the lectures is quite good. The professors can be approached easily and make time for you to answer your questions. The program coordinators are really eager to help you wherever you need. Lastly, the university terrain is in a good state and everything is easy to find. The new building, which is due in the summer of 2018, will be a real asset to this university. The facilities are high class and most of the time available. However, the enormous growth of Tilburg University has caused some troubles with the availability during exam periods.
The minus point of Tilburg University is the communication, which is sometimes not correct or missing. If this happens, they are reachable via the phone or e-mail.
Tilburg University is a very international university. More specifically, some of the programs offered have more international than Dutch students and this makes it easier for internationals to meet with others who are in the same phase. At the same time, there are many organizations running at the University and this is a nice way to do more things than just studying. I highly recommend it as a University. However, if you do not like relatively small cities, then Tilburg is not for you!
Currently, I am a pre-master student doing Supply Chain Management. I like the atmosphere and the way of teaching. There are also the necessary facilities and appliances for my study. But sometimes there are not enough study places on the campus especially, the week before exams. Therefore, the university has to come with a solution for this.
I enjoyed my time here, like the way that the University is placing huge emphasize on reading. I believe, this way we can be aware of the topics better. As improvement I would suggest to provide more places in the library. It is a really convenient and peaceful place to study but it is too crowded all the time.
It’s a nice place to study in a beautiful atmosphere. The lessons and colleges are on a high level. I get the chance to develop myself. The thing i would like to improve is building study place such as library because it could be pretty hard for all students to spend time there since its very busy. The other advantage is that when you skip classes, you still have the opportunity to study all the materials online. All in all, the standard of education is high and on the world level.
Just started my pre-master Supply Chain at Tilburg University. The campus is really a great place to be with a lot room for studying, eating or just relaxing if you need some ‘air’. Also students have respect for each other and the overall mood is multicultural and positive. The level of education is high and challenging. At this University you really feel like your study is your way of life, instead of just ‘going to school, because you have to’. You really get encouraged to spend time to your study. I highly recommend this place!
