TOP Week (Monday evening August 22nd - Friday August 26st)

Every year, before the academic year starts, TOP Week takes place. TOP is an abbreviation for Tilburg Orientation Program. This is the general introduction week for all new Tilburg University students. 
This week forms the ideal opportunity for you to get to know your fellow students! More Information about TOP Week can be found here. TOP Week is from August 22-26. At August 22st the TOP program starts in the evening. At August 23rd the TOP program starts after the MAK Introduction Day  with the Explore 013 Fair on Campus. 

TOP Week is the first time freshmen have the opportunity to get to know each other. Throughout the whole week all kind of fun activities will be organized that will stimulate the introduction and integration of the students. During this week, all freshmen will be divided into groups of approximately 15 people who all have the same study program. The group will be guided by two senior students (student mentors), who will show them all aspects of student life in Tilburg. The week gives you an impression of all sport clubs, study associations and student groups Tilburg has to offer. You will meet many new people and make great friends of the same study program
