First year student guide: Tilburg University

Being a first year student at a university is an exciting experience, but also a completely new experience. Therefore, I (an experienced first year student) would like to share some tips with you. These tips definitely helped me during my first year as an IBA student. They vary from public transport to study associations, so be prepared to take notes!

#1 TOP week
TOP stands for Tilburg Orientation Program. TOP week is an introduction week for first year students, where you can meet other students and explore the city of Tilburg.

Therefore, I would advise you to participate in the TOP week. It is the perfect kick-off for your first year!
