Our faculty has five study associations; Complex, SPS-NIP, POLIS, INPUT and Versot. They all represent different studies and organize professional, educational and informal activities. Being a member of one of these study associations means that you will get discount on books and summaries, that you will meet a lot of new people and expand your network. It´s also a great opportunity to meet students from different year layers. All information about these study associations you will find on this page.
Study Association Complex is the study association for all psychology students who study at Tilburg University. Complex is the third largest association of the university and the largest within our faculty (Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences) with more than 1500 members. Study Association Complex organizes many activities and offers many services that can help you with your study. Complex organizes formal and informal activities. In our calendar, you can find an overview of all the activities that will be organized throughout the year. Our formal activities include our annual seminar, symposia, workshops and the study trip! For more relaxing activities we organize theme parties, an introduction camp, pub quizzes, beer cantusses, sports activities and more! All of our activities are organized by different committees, which allow you to be active in a student life. The committees vary in intensity and duration, but it’s almost always possible to be active in a committee besides your study. We strive to make our activities accessible for both Dutch and international students. At Complex, you can buy summaries of your different courses, which have been made and checked by AthenaSummaries. The summaries are normally available at the Complex office (T6.03). Besides offering summaries, Complex offers tutoring lessons. We work together with AthenaStudies to offer these tutoring lessons. Also, you can get a discount on your study books if you are a member and order your books via our website. You can become a member by filling in the registration form at our website: https://complextilburg.nl/registration-form/ If you have any questions, you can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Besides the Study Associations, our faculty also has other associations: 2 student parties and an association focussing on career oriëntation.
The student parties are participating in the School Council of TSB. The School Council plays an important role in the faculty. The Council can advise the Management Team, solicited or not, about e.g. the school’s budget, the education and research plan, proceedings for appointing professors, annual accounts, and the annual report.
Student party for all TSB students
Stimulus is one of the two student parties representing students in the School Council of the Faculty of Social Behavior and Sciences. Together with the staff and the Management Team we discuss the functioning of our faculty in monthly meetings, new changes are submitted and existing programs are reviewed. We take a critical look at all of the issues that the students give us feedback on and work to improve education for them.
What are some specific issues that we discuss?
For instance, budget estimates of the faculty, Strategic Plans, new education programs, the revision of existing programs and the Teaching and Examination Regulations (OER).
While our main focus lies on faculty affairs, we also value a good collaboration with other boards and councils within the university as well as with the university parties SAM and Front. Via the TSB platform we keep in touch with study associations of every program of TSB.
