Understanding Society

We strive to contribute constructively to a better understanding of people and society through research and education. In our educational programs, important societal and global issues form the backdrop to learning. Students will become more aware of the issues facing our globalizing world and how future decisions impact society. In addition, the university attaches great importance to the transfer of knowledge to society and to the valorization of scientific knowledge. We realize this through supporting the cultural philosophical social debate, providing education for senior executives in the public and private sectors, support of business start-ups, and forging partnerships with the business community and other (non) governmental organizations.


Research and innovation

Tilburg University is distinguished for its high quality research and has over 20 research centers, from which eleven are multidisciplinary. Professionals from different fields collaborate and work there together. Complex social issues increasingly demand cohesive research from a variety of different disciplines which are leading to innovative areas of expertise. We provide talented students with extra challenges and train and prepare them for responsible positions in society.



Tilburg University is the educational home to over 13,000 students from 85 different countries worldwide. Offering a wide range of both English and Dutch multidisciplinary Bachelor Degree and Master Degree programs, the university  does not only offer a wide choice of programs to international students, but also gives Dutch students the chance to prepare for studying and working in an international context.


Through a policy of internationalization Tilburg University is developing high-profile recognition on a national, European and international level. We are participating in national and international networks and entering into alliances with other universities world-wide. We welcome staff and students from all over the world, and offer them advanced facilities to help them develop their talents to the full. The name Tilburg University has long been synonymous with research and education of the highest caliber. We will continue to build upon our successes.
