    Great teaching and great atmosphere!

    The teaching is excellent and they are very good at creating a pleasant atmosphere for the students. Especially compared to other universities they understand how to make you love the subject. A thing they could improve on is the support for housing and the bureaucracy in general that is lacking.

    A green university, for those of us that get distracted

    The first thing I noticed on campus is that the university is surrounded by so much greenery and is partly surrounded by a forest. Tilburg is also a much quieter city than Amsterdam, Rotterdam, etc, and there isn’t a ton of nightlife, although there will always be parties to go to if you know where to look. But this is precisely why the university is a good fit for someone like me, that can get very distracted very fast. The perks of Tilburg are that if you DO want to go get crazy, all you have to do is hop on the train and you can go wherever you need to, so everything is within reach but not so close that it distracts from your studies.
    I also like the structure of the psychology program, where in the first year you do a basic foundation of psychology so you can learn what you like, in the second year you can pick your major and in your third year you can pick your minor (with the option of an overseas exchange). It’s also worth noting that TiU also offers some highly specific majors that most universities don’t offer.
    The academic year is broken down into multiple blocks, with exams at the end of each one. This means that you are not overwhelmed with having to do exams with a year’s worth of content all at once. Most exams are 6 weeks worth of content, but sometimes it is 12 if a course goes on for 2 blocks.
    The campus also has great teachers who are very friendly and approachable, a lot of student clubs that are very diverse, and great on-campus facilities.
    One downside however is that a lot of students struggle to find housing so it’s imperative that you start looking as soon as possible.

    World-leading researchers and opportunities for students to engage in research

    I liked that our professors were experts in the field. I also liked the ability to specialize in my master’s course. I was enrolled in the Law and Technology masters program and the program covered a wide range of technology areas such as cybercrime, data protection, intellectual property. My colleagues were very international, driven and nice. There were also a lot of internship and research opportunities if you are interested.

    Hello, Thank you for your review. I have some questions. How many hours you had to visit classes for your LLM program? And how many days you had to go to classes? Was it possible to work during the program? Were there students from Germany, who lived in Germany but commuted to the classes? Kind Regards Aynur

    Hello, I don't quite precisely remember but I would say an average of about 3-4 hours per day. And the days depend on the courses you choose and the scheduling but you can carve out some time for work, though not long hours. And yes, we had German students - not sure if any commuted daily for classes though.

    I would like to highlight the international approach that the University offers.

    I believe that it is a challenging, yet inviting course that offers a variety of subjects that aid in offering a better legal understanding that is interconnected between countries. The course coordinators and staff are helpful and offer a great deal of support both on and off-campus.

    Good university in not so vibrant city

    Overall, I am satisfied with my choice of studies.
    The psychology program is well organized. During the first year, you have all introductory courses to the majority of fields in Psychology so you can become more familiar with what suits you the most. Then during the second and third year, you can personalize your study path and basically choose the courses you want to study. Most professors have extensive experience with teaching so the courses are properly taught. Moreover, I am glad about the level of difficulty of my studies. I can say that If you are motivated to study, you will definitely pass the courses. However, here, it’s difficult to get a high grade for the course, compared to other Universities in the Netherlands, because of the strict grading rules. On the one hand, it can be seen as an advantage because it motivates you more, but on the other hand, it’s a big disadvantage for people who wants to have a good GPA to apply for a good Master’s program.
    In terms of the student nightlife, in Tilburg it’s difficult to have one 🙂 However, the city is nicely connected to the larger cities in which you can find more opportunities to spend your free time.
    More about the University itself, the campus is compact and well-kept. Students have access to supermarkets, restaurants, and a variety of coffee points (you need a lot of coffee during examination weeks :)). There are places to go for a walk because the campus is situated next to the forest. All university staff treat students with respect and always try to help as much as possible. Of course, there is still room for improvement.
    1. I am an international student so it was a real challenge to find the proper accommodation in Tilburg, which would not cost a ridiculous amount of money. There is nothing like a student house that is supported by the University, so you need to rent a place only from private owners.
    2. During the examination period students lack places to study. Nevertheless, there are several buildings provided to students for studying purposes, but still, that is not enough for the number of students here.
    3. Quite often my exam was scheduled during Saturdays. Personally, I think it’s not fully professional to interfere with students’ free time. However, the whole examination process is always carried out properly.
    To conclude, it’s nice to study here! I believe this University will prepare me well for my future carrier path.

    Challenging degree with practical focus

    This masters’ degree offers an interesting insight into the fields of work and organizational psychology. Real cases are used for assignments and students get to work with different companies from the Netherlands. That makes it very interesting but also challenging. Furthermore, guest lecturers from different companies share their experiences and offer insight into their daily work. The courses are set up in a very interactive way and often include group assignments or group discussions. Currently, all courses are taught on campus.

    I would recommend the degree, as it combines theoretical knowledge, research, and practical case studies.

    Great student life in the green campus!

    Great professors who combine theoretical aspects of courses with practical exercises. There are many group works that lead to learning deeply. There is an intense schedule especially for master’s degrees which can be tough sometimes. There are many quizzes and assignments that ensure you have learnt lessons. You can experience a great student life beside many international students.
