It is good to prepare yourself before you actually go to the open day. Here are some tips:

  • Take a look at the website of the educational institution. This will help you find out what studies are available and will give you a first impression of the study.
  • Ask friends and other acquaintances about their experiences with open days. Who knows, they may have had good experiences with the educational institutions.
  • Write down a number of questions you want to ask at the open day. No question is stupid and the other students and professors are there to answer your questions.



After attending the open day, it is absolutely recommended to take a look at the city. Tilburg is beautiful in its own way. It is a student city, which you can slowly discover and must experience. It is compact, however, you will definitely not get bored easily. Want a taste? Leo Alkemade would like to take you with him in the video below!
