Pay attention: TOP Week is not a multi-day event. Therefore, the current measures do not apply to TOP Week. TOP Week will continue with physical events. As soon as we get more information, it will be communicated.

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.

Due to the press conference on July 9th, there are some changes to the TOP Week program. At this time, we are working with two main scenarios. In both scenarios, we will use the “Testing For Access” system. In doing so, we will use the policy that the government is implementing at the time of TOP Week. When there is more clarity on which scenario will be used, this will be communicated immediately on our social media channels. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram (topweek013), LinkedIn (Tilburg Orientation Program), TikTok (TikToptilburg), or check our website www.top-week.nl. 

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. 

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.

TOP Week 2021

Non-placed scenario: If it is announced during the press conference on August 13 that the original relaxations from before July 9 may apply again, this scenario will be used. Explanations of these components can be found on our website. 

What does the non-placed scenario mean?

  • Upon entry, you must show your personal QR code (explanation of the QR code follows under the heading “Testing for Entry”)
  • You do not have to keep 1.5 meters distance
  • Sitting at tables is not necessary
  • Activities do not take place in shifts
