Free City Tour: 18th of August 2018

Join us as our Buddies and Mentors will take you on a tour around the city of Tilburg. The event is completely free and will allow you to see many of the important landmarks around Tilburg to kickstart your stay abroad. After we have shown you around we will have some typical Dutch snacks for you in our own bar Carpe Noctem.

TOP Week: 20th-24th of August 2018
TOP Week is the big introduction week in Tilburg and for most students the start of their study period in Tilburg. During the week, study-related and fun-related activities are nicely combined and usually finished up with great parties. During this week, I*ESN is present in different ways. Together with your I*ESN mentors and buddies you will have a daytime program, filled with fun and serious and practical events, and in the evenings we organise parties at our own bar ‘Carpe Noctem’ in the city centre.

I*ESN Introduction Camp: 31st of August – 2nd of September 2018
The perfect way to introduce yourself to your mentor or buddy and your new internationally minded groups is by joining us all on Intro-camp. We take you away by bus to the Dutch countryside along with over 100 students all new to Tilburg and take part in fun and games on a Dutch cow farm. Accommodation, transportation, food and activities are all included in the €45 members price (€55 for non-members).

In the meantime, don’t forget to join the Facebook group we created especially for you!
