The people behind SAM

We believe Tilburg University students are ambitious during their student life. Whether it is inside and/or outside the curriculum, students want to fulfill their ambitions and maximize their student time. We will ensure that all Tilburg University students get the opportunities to achieve their goals.

Four pillars

Quality of Education

SAM strives for excellent education at Tilburg University. Therefore, SAM focuses on the following topics: Excellent Teachers, the Quality of your Degree, Digitization, Soft Skills and the Innovation of Education.

Student Facilities

SAM aims for excellent student facilities. This forms the foundation for students to fulfill their ambitions. SAM focuses on four types of facilities: Study Facilities, Sports Facilities, Student Housing and Facilities for Student Well-Being.

Labor Market

SAM believes that all students should be well-prepared for their future employment. This means that education programs should align with the requirements of the labor market. Furthermore, students should have sufficient possibilities to orient themselves for their future career, for example, by doing an internship.

Personal Development

SAM believes that extracurricular activities such as honours programs and an active student life contributes significantly to the personal development of students. SAM ensures that Tilburg University values these activities properly and stimulates students to develop themselves in their own way.

A board year might be one of the most effective ways to do so. Equal opportunities should therefore be available to all students, encouraged and recognized by the university. 
This follow-up initiative proposes two concrete solutions to the Executive Board to create equal opportunities among students. First to start a pilot for tuition waivers in the Participative decision-making bodies of the university (the University-Faculty Councils and the Educational Committees), and second to set up a sounding board to frame the needs and wishes of international students regarding student life in Tilburg. 
We hope this will be rolled out to other associations in the future as well, to recreate equal opportunities for the personal development of ALL students!

Follow-up initiative: Board Grants for non-EEA Students
Both Student Parties Ecco and SAM believe students should be given the same opportunities for their personal development and to build their CV when studying in Tilburg. A board year might be one of the most effective ways to do so. Equal opportunities should therefore be available to all students, encouraged and recognized by the university. 
This follow-up initiative proposes two concrete solutions to the Executive Board to create equal opportunities among students. First to start a pilot for tuition waivers in the Participative decision-making bodies of the university (the University-Faculty Councils and the Educational Committees), and second to set up a sounding board to frame the needs and wishes of international students regarding student life in Tilburg. 
We hope this will be rolled out to other associations in the future as well, to recreate equal opportunities for the personal development of ALL students!
