The University of Tilburg was recently awarded by the NVAO (Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders) with the Institutional Quality Assurance Label. This accreditation is to demonstrate that the University ensures a constant progression and quality of education through its teaching and study programmes. This is not only highlighted through the University’s teaching but also through its state of the art study and educational facilities. Tilburg focuses on providing each of its departments with the necessary investment and equipment to support its research and students. The University’s campus also offers cybercafés, e-learning centres and modern individual and group workspaces, in order to provide students with the best possible learning environment.
Apart from its educational facilities, Tilburg University also prides itself in its world-class sporting facilities and activities. These include football, volleyball, hockey and tennis courts, a 400-meter skating track, 3 swimming pools across the city, and highly equipped gyms that provide a range of classes. The University also offers more than 45 different activity sports as part of its university sport varsity programmes, with a particular focus on its hockey and rowing clubs. In order to provide support to the large group of talented sport athletes that attend the university, Tilburg offers special study and personal support to help students balance the demands of being a professional athlete whilst carrying out higher education.
Located along the outskirts of Tilburg and surrounded by green, the compact campus offers students with all they need in order to have a fulfilling student life. The city being only 20 minutes from Amsterdam and Belgium means students can arrange weekend getaways in order to enjoy the bustling capital city, or even a change in scenery, by crossing the border into Belgium. Tilburg University of Applied Sciences is truly a modern innovative University that strives to provide students with the necessary academic, personal and social skills in order for them to become active members in their communities.
