Become a Mentor

We are looking for enthusiastic new Mentors and Buddies. As a mentor, you will get to know a group of approximately 25 exchange students from all over the world, party with them and show them around Tilburg and the Netherlands. Every Tuesday, you will have dinner with your group where you will also meet all other international students. After that you’ll all come to our bar for a great party!  

Besides all the fun and parties, you also get to coordinate your group and help them to acclimatise to the Netherlands. Through this you learn how to manage events (the weekly dinners), improve your motivational skills (by getting everyone to the dinner and party afterwards), and mingle in a culturally diverse organisation (we have students from all around the world). 
 
In the end, the most amazing part of being in I*ESN is exchanging ideas and experiences with people from all around the world. For (at least) a full semester, you’ll meet wonderful people, who are eager to make the most of their exchange.

You can apply by filling in this form.

Become a Buddy

As a buddy, you will become friends with a group of 15 to 20 international Masters students from all around the world. You’ll help them get to know Tilburg and each other. Twice a month you will have an activity with your own group or with other groups as well. This is usually on a Thursday and can be a dinner or some (pre)drinks together. After the dinner or (pre)drinks there will usually be a party at our bar. During the Thursday parties, we have different music themes in order to serve all tastes within our organization.

Besides all the fun and dinners, you also get to coordinate and help your group to integrate into the Dutch culture. Through this you learn how to manage events (the two monthly activities), you improve your motivational skills (by getting everyone to the dinner and party afterwards) and also mingling in a culturally diverse organization (we have students from all around the world).

In the end, the most amazing part of being with I*ESN is building an international network and broadening your horizon with people from around the world. You meet interesting people, eager to learn about Dutch culture and looking for a platform to make international friends with similar interests.

You can apply by filling in this form.

Become BarCo!

The Bar Committee AKA BarCo!

These are the people in the red shirts standing behind the bar whenever you’re at a party at Carpe Noctem who are serving you drinks and handing you a cup of water when you are at your worst.

BarCo is one of the most respected committees in I*ESN. Without us, there is no party. In the BarCo, you’re doing great shifts which end in even greater after-drinks, where legendary tales are told years after it happened. Outside of the bar shifts, there are monthly meetings with a formal part where we discuss BarCo happenings and then an informal part where we do a group activity as well as occasional outings with your BarCo family. Being a part of BarCo, you not only make new friends with those from the committee but also with all of the people who visit Carpe Noctem.

BarCo is also one of the most independent committees in I*ESN, and as a result, it is a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience by becoming a Bar Manager, where you take on more responsibility for making sure that Carpe Noctem and BarCo runs smoothly.

Lastly, as a thank you for all of your hard work during the semester, we have the BarCo thank you activity where you will have a nice day out with your fellow BarCo!
