8.7 Flexible Education
Since the 2017/2018 academic year, Tilburg University has been participating in the pilot project on flexible studies. This allows students to follow degree programs at reduced tuition fees at an appropriate pace. The amount per credit is derived from the statutory tuition fees. For the 2021/2022 academic year, this included the 15% statutory surcharge of €20.78 (2020/2021: €41.07). The pilot project was designed for students with a recognized status of student athlete, entrepreneur, caregiver, and/or chronic illness. The program does not apply to students in pre-Master’s programs or joint programs. Of the 39 students expressing interest in the 2021/2022 academic year, 29 were admitted to the pilot project (2020/2021: 29).
