When can I register?
You can register for the EBT 2021 from February 1 until February 25.
What if I am unexpectedly unable to participate?
In case you are unexpectedly unable to participate in an activity, you are able to cancel your registration free of charge until three office days before the activity takes place. This can be done by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by giving a call to +31 (0)13 463 3516. If you do not cancel the activity in time, we will charge fees according to our penalty policy that can be regarded in our Terms and Conditions.
What happens if I don’t show up at an online activity?
If you do not show up at an online activity without cancelling more than three working days before the activity takes place, a fine of €20 will be charged. For every extra activity where you do not show up, an extra €5 will be charged. For more information, visit the registration and costs page.
What are the costs of the EBT and how do I pay?
In order to serve students of Tilburg University in the best way possible, we charge small fees for some activities. For an overview of all costs, look at the registration and costs page. You will also receive a free goodie bag at the start of the EBT. The CV/LinkedIn checks, the Training Day, the Business Night and the Sustainability Symposium are free of charge.
When you create an account, you have to enter your IBAN and your IBAN account name. If you check the box for automatic deduction of your registration costs, you agree that we will automatically deduct your registration costs after the EBT. If you have not checked this box, you are required to sign a SEPA direct debit authorisation form. Eventually, the costs will be withdrawn automatically from your bank account. If you are an international student without an IBAN account, you have to pay the registration fee in cash.
Should I upload a Dutch or an English CV?
It depends on the activities that you register for. If you register for English CV activities, make sure to upload an English CV. If you only register for Dutch activities, it is also sufficient if you upload a Dutch CV.
