各位老师、同学们


大家好!随着新一年的到来,许多荷兰大学对一些专业做出了新的调整。今天,小编就来介绍一下蒂尔堡大学2020年秋季招生项目有哪些变化。


变化一:为了加快审核进度及对学生背景的评估,蒂尔堡大学强烈建议申请本科的学生提供Statement of Education表格。


下载地址(请注意:该表格需由校方填写)


https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/education/bachelors-programs/application-and-admission/statement- educational-institution



We believe you have already noticed that we have a new admissions requirement for bachelors: the statement of education. This document is meant only for applicants who still have no final high school diploma/certificate in hands. It must be filled in by the school and not by you (agents) nor the student. The aim of this document is to support and speed up the admissions process and diploma evaluation.


The school does not want to fill in a document in English, only in its local language → you, as our agent, is free to translate the word doc file yourself.


  • If you keep the original text in English exactly as provided by us and add next to it the translation to the local language, you do not need to sworn translate it before sending it back. The stamp from the school is sufficient

  • If you do not keep the original text in English and only a full translation of the document, It is fine, but you will need to have it sworn translated back to English and upload both versions (local language and English)

  • The school is refusing to fill in the document or has its own model → this is not desirable, but we are willing to consider this.

  • You will need to upload a statement as an additional document, stating that the school willnot fill in the document. This might delay the assessment of the application. Some answers to frequently asked questions regarding the form:


Teaching hours per week: they can count each lesson of e.g. 45 minutes as 1 teaching hour


Predicted grades: only if applicable - schools only need to supply predicted grades if their school system is able to do so.


The form is currently not mandatory, although strongly advisable. It does help the admissions teamand speeds up their process. However, students are currently able to submit their application without the form.




变化二:蒂尔堡大学接受无雅思/GMAT/GRE递交申请,如符合申请要求学校会给予有条件录取。9月份入学的学生最晚在8月1日前补交雅思/GMAT/GRE。学生如果在无GMAT/GRE的情况下,获得硕士预科的录取,仍需要补交GMAT/GRE.




Can the proof of English Proficiency be submitted later? What aboutGMAT and GRE?



  • Yes. Both proof of English Proficiency (TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge scores) for both bachelors and masters, and the GRE and GMAT certificates for the masters of the school of economics and management, might be uploaded later. Therefore, you/your student may submit their application without it. However: 

  • Once the candidate meet all further requirements, she/he will be conditionally admitted being the conditions for admissions the proof of English Proficiency and/or GMAT/GRE. If they do not submit them within the deadline stated in the letter, they will not have their admissions/ acceptance confirmed and will not be able to start the program

  • For the September intake, the deadline is normally on August 1. The student should always inform the International Admissions Coordinator (former called admissions officers)

  • For the psychology applicants, despite the numerus fixus, it is also possible to submit the proof of English Proficiency later. Read more about this at “Bachelor Psychology – numerus fixus” below.


If a student applies without GMAT or GRE and gets premaster advice, will he be exempted of the GMAT or GRE?


  • No, the student will always have to take the GMAT/GRE for both the Master and the pre-Master’s program





变化三:蒂尔堡大学心理学本科招生名额为600名,符合条件的学生需要择优选拔,申请截止时间为1月15日




How many students in total in the fix quota? 600 places for both national and international students.


When is the application deadline? January 15.


Do students need to submit the English proficiency immediately?Preferably, applicants include their English language test results in their application when submitting it. However, as for the other programs, the deadline for the English language results is August 1 (no later!).


Can a student take a gap year and use the acceptance for the following academic year? No.


  • A candidate who does not accept his proof of placement has used one selection attempt. If he /

    she registers again for the following year, the entire selection procedure must be repeated.

  • You can register a maximum of two times for the selection procedure of the Bachelor's program in Psychology at Tilburg University. Selection results cannot be carried over to the next year.


How does the selection procedure works?


  • As any other program, each applicant will be informed on his/her eligibility within 6 weeks after submitting the application.

  • In the case of Psychology, if positive, the candidate will be invited for the selection procedure

  • (knowledge test and motivation assignment). This will take place on March 6. Students should not worry about the knowledge test and motivation assignment.

  • On April 15, the outcome of the selection procedure/ranking list will be announced.

  • After the announcement, the applicant will still have a few months, until August 1, to provide the requested document as mentioned in the conditional admission letter (this is the same lettersent within 6 weeks after the submission of the application!).




变化四:蒂尔堡大学取消以下专业


  • 本科公共治理:公共管理,经济学和法律

  • 硕士受害者和刑事司法;在线文化

  • 研究型硕士经济学税法经济学分支




Bachelor Public Governance: Public Administration, Economics and Law -


https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/education/bachelors-programs/public-governance


This bachelor has been discontinued. Therefore, it is not possible to apply for the BSc Public Governance. Nothing changes for current students, though. If you have any current applicants for this program, please contact partners@tilburguniversity.edu so that we can think together on the best possibility for your student.


Possible alternatives are Global Management of Social Issues, Global Law, University College: Liberal Arts andSciences, or International Sociology.


Master Victimology and Criminal Justic


https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/education/masters-programmes/victimology-and-criminal-justice


This master has been discontinued. Students cannot enroll for the MSc Victimology and Criminal Justice program for the academic year 2020-2021. Tilburg Law School investigates the possibilities to broaden this specialized master's degree and intends to start a redesigned program in 2021-2022. We will keep you posted in case the currently scenario changes.


Master Track in Online Culture – This track has been discontinued. As of the academic year 2020-2021, Online Culture will be split into two new tracks: Art and Media Studies & Digital Culture Studies. For more information, please see “Changes in Current Programs” below


Tax Economics Track within the Research Master in Economics - This track has been discontinued. Please note that the Research Master is still active and quite successful. The discontinuation refers only about one specific track students could choose once they start this two-year Research Master. In addition, the one-year master in International Business Tax Economics remains active.



变化五:蒂尔堡大学原Online culture分支变更为Art and Media Studies和Digital Culture Studies两个分支,两个专业均设有pre-master.



Master Track in Online Culture – This track has been discontinued. As of September 2020, the Online Culture track will be split into two separate tracks. Both tracks will be about culture at the online/offline nexus, but have a different focus


Art and Media Studies  focuses on artistic and creative practices and aesthetic concepts that can be found online as well as offline. In this track you will study how new technologies stimulate ‘other’ uses of art and literature, invite a crossover of roles of producer and consumer, hybridize genres, and permeate the boundaries between the digital and the analogue. 


https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/education/masters-programmes/art-media-studies


Digital Culture Studies focuses on how digitalization affects our cultures. In this track you will study how the emergence and the expansion of digital technologies constantly rearranges and innovates the contacts that we establish and maintain with others and in what way it changes our norms for conduct, identities, relationships and communities at all levels of social life: everyday, public, private, economic, educational and political – local as well as global.


https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/education/masters-programmes/digital-culture-studies


Both tracks will offer a Pre-Master’s program as well.


Each of the two tracks partly overlaps with the current Online Culture program. That is why we believe that students currently applying or considering online culture will be interested in at least one of the two.




变化六:蒂尔堡大学2020年9月新增以下专业


  • 本科创业学与新商务创新

  • 硕士艺术媒体研究

                    数据文化研究

Master Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence

 (Expected) Master Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence – Two-year! As you probably know, we have discontinued our 1-year master and applied for accreditation for a two-year Master in Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. Currently, the status is that the visitation committee that assessed our application has given a positive advice to the Accreditation Committee (NVAO). In nearly all cases, a positive advice results in accreditation. Therefore, we have decided to start communicating about the program. We are aiming to launch it on September 2020, if the program is indeed granted accreditation. More info about program content and admissions requirements can be found here:


https://www.tilburguniversity.edu/education/masters-programmes/cognitive-science-and-artificial-intelligence


“Gain a deep understanding of human cognition and artificial intelligence to research and develop innovative solutions and applications. This 2-year Master's program combines knowledge of cognitive science and artificial intelligence with techniques such as advanced deep learning, deep reinforcement learning and Bayesian modeling. You will investigate various aspects of intelligence, such as reasoning, learning, perception, communication and collaboration from both the human perspective and the machine perspective.”




其他变更:


1. 数据科学与社会硕士项目:该专业提供商务、管理、传媒及健康四个研究领域,以往该项目的学生可以自由选择自己最感兴趣的领域。但是自2020年9月起,学校会根据学生的教育背景决定学生学习的领域。该专业不接受已具备良好Technical/IT背景的学生的申请,此类学生建议考虑Data Science and Entrepreneurship项目。




Master Data Science and Society – In this program, after starting, students must follow one of the offered domains: Business, Governance, Media, or Health. So far, they could choose one of their interest. However, from September 2020, students’ previous education will not only determine whether they are eligible to the program, but also in which of the four domains they are allowed to specialize.


A reminder: unfortunately, students with a solid technical/IT academic background will not be accepted into the program. For example, students who already have knowledge of things like Data Visualization and Machine Learning, or a bachelor in informatics, computer sciences and other similar courses are not eligible for this program. This is because the program aims at students who have no such prior knowledge, and the curriculum is prepared to attend this audience. For students with technical background, the joint master Data Science and Entrepreneurship would be more suitable.



2. Master Tracks Digital Culture Studies 和Art and Media Studies接受文化研究、文学艺术与科学、宗教研究、文化人类学等专业背景学生的申请。




Master Tracks Digital Culture Studies and Art and Media Studies – regarding the admissions for the two new master tracks within culture studies, a Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline, such as general Culture Studies, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Religious Studies, Cultural Anthropology is required. All the other requirements are the same as they were for Online Culture




3. 国际管理硕士:接受无商科背景且无工作经验的学生申请。但此类学生可能会要求加读硕士预科。


International Management - Do international students need work experience to apply for InternationalManagement if they have a different educational background?


No, no work experience is needed.


Students with a non-Business background are eligible once they meet all stated requirements (they might need to do a pre-Master’s program however.
