Pay attention: For the activities highlighted in yellow, you need to Test for Access. In the app, you can see your personal agenda. Based on that, you can start scheduling appointments in Testing for Access if necessary. You may need to go to the same associations several times and may therefore miss a day at an association. However, this is precise because of COVID-19 capacity constraints and cannot be scheduled in any other way. This can also mean when you are a (pre-)master student that you might not be scheduled for a (pre-)master dinner.

If you are going to study at one of the universities of applied sciences (HBO) or at Tilburg University, you can sign up for TOP Week! During TOP Week you will get a delicious dinner every evening and you will get at least 3 lunches throughout the week. In addition, you will receive access to all activities that TOP Week organizes and you will receive a nice goodie bag when you register! The registration costs for TOP Week are €75.

The placed scenario: If the current measures remain in place, we will be working with a placated scenario. This means all parties will continue, some of them, however, in an alternative way. Activities will take place in shifts, meaning everyone has a chance to come and party! The initially communicated program will hardly change. We only maintain a longer period in which activities should take place. This means that everyone will get the chance to get to know associations and other parties during the “Explore 013 Fair” in the Leijpark, have a bite to eat with the student associations during “Meet the big four” and attend all the parties of TOP Week. 

What does a placed scenario mean? 

The placed scenario involves working with “Testing for Access” and flow-through events. Some requirements and restrictions apply to this scenario. The yellow marked activities require Testing for Access. As a participant, you are assigned to a certain shift. You can see your personal program during TOP Week in our application which can be downloaded in the Play/Apple store. You will receive the credentials one week before TOP Week.

An activity with Testing for Access:

  • All participants and mentors can show a QR code (explained below) for entry.
  • Everyone must be seated at a table. Sitting at the table you do not need to keep a 1.5-meter distance.
  • The capacity is smaller so we will work in shifts so everyone can go to the same events.

A flow-through activity:

  • You do not have to show a QR code upon entry.
  • During this activity, you need to keep 1.5 meters distance.
