How do I register for an activity?

 You can register for an activity by clicking on the event via the ‘Our Events’ page. An overview of all your registrations can be found on your personal profile.

Can I register for activities that take place at the same time?

Yes, this is possible. If this happens, you will be asked to rank your preference. In this way, we will be able to assign you to your preferred activity in case you are selected for multiple overlapping activities.

What are the costs of the EBT and how do I pay?

For some activities, the EBT charges a small participation fee in order to serve the students of Tilburg University in the best way possible. When you click on an event on the ‘Our Events’ page, you can see whether the activity has a participation fee. For an overview of the participation and penalty fees, take a look at the Fee Policy page.

At the end of the EBT, you will be charged with a SEPA incasso for all activities in which you participated. Please note that any iDEAL or SEPA payments come with a fee which will be added to your bill. Also, note that any penalties for not showing up to an activity will be added to your bill.

I am unable to participate, what should I do?

In case you have registered yourself for one or more activities and are unexpectedly unable to participate, please de- register yourself by sending an email to [email protected] . The cancellation is free of charge until three working days before the activity takes place. If you do not cancel your registration in time, we will charge fees according to our penalty policy that can be regarded in our Terms & Conditions. 

What happens if I do not show up at an activity?

When the participant does not show up at the activity without cancellation, a fine of €20 will be charged. Per extra activity where the participant does cancel too late an extra €5 will be charged. Per extra activity where the participant does not show up an extra €10 will be charged on top of the €20.

Will the activities take place physically?

The EBT follows the measures as implemented by the Dutch government. For now, the activities will all take place physically, however this is subject to change and will be communicated timely.

Why do I have to upload both an anonymous CV as well as a regular CV?

As of 2023, the EBT requires you to upload an anonymous CV next to your regular CV. This system was implemented in order to remove subconscious bias from the selection process. As a result, companies will select participants based on their anonymous CVs.

Which activities require a(n) (anonymous) CV to sign up?

The following activities require you to upload your CV:

  • Consultancy Experience
  • Big Four Accountancy Experience
  • Case Days
  • Company Days Workshop
  • Company Days Business Lunch
  • Company Days Business Dinner
  • Company Days Individual Conversations
  • Company Days Informal Activity
Should I upload a Dutch or an English CV?

It depends on the activities you register for. If you register for English activities, make sure to upload an English CV. If you only register for Dutch activities, a Dutch CV is sufficient.

Does the EBT also offer activities for international students?

The EBT is open to anyone, therefore all activities that are provided in English are relevant for international students. For the EBT 2023, available activities in English are:
