First Year Bachelor Student

What to expect as a bachelor student?

Down below, you can see what we organised in 2023. Once the program for the 2024 Introduction is official, we will post it here!

For the Bachelor programs, the Program Introduction will take place on the 21st of August 2023 to kick-start your academic career. Participation is mandatory for all students. 

During the Program Introduction, you will meet your Education Coordinator, Academic Director and mentor group, which will also be your tutorial group throughout the year. Your Education Coordinator will provide you with detailed information about your study program. Finally, you will get to know your fellow students better during several fun activities, where you will have to work together!

With MAK, we have prepared a fun and interactive program! Let us take you through the program:


We start the day off with an interactive quiz where you can win prizes for you and your group. Questions relating to Tilburg and student life will catch you up to speed for a good start here in Tilburg.

Plane Mania

After this, you’ll head on to an escape room experience where you and your group will need to escape a fallen airplane. Solve different puzzles with your group and get out in time!


Around the C-building, there will be a festival-like food truck lunch with live music which will give you enough energy for the rest of the day!

Information Per Study

During the Information Per Study-session, the Educational Coordinator and the Academic Director will tell you all relevant information about your study to start off your year.


Several smaller and bigger games, like an obstacle run, can be played on the Warandefield to really create a good start to the team building within your group! Try to fend off other teams in a battle!

We hope that this will be a good start to your student life here in Tilburg by getting to know your fellow students and your mentors!
