Serving and enhancing society to help citizens. That is what drives us. It was the opinion of Tilburg University’s founding father, Martinus Cobbenhagen, that those who want to understand society should be actively and consciously involved in it. This philosophy is still at the basis of what our university wants to contribute. Under the motto of ‘Understanding society’, more than 1,500 employees develop knowledge, transfer it to others, and bring people from various disciplines and organizations together.
The high-quality programs provide an outstanding academic foundation to launch any career. Students work together with peers from all over the world, join courses taught by excellent lecturers and researchers, and develop their ability to conduct scientific research. Tilburg University offers bachelor’s, master’s, and research master’s programs at five different schools:
