Extra Muros, THE study association of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is a platform for all Liberal Arts and Sciences students at Tilburg University College. Extra Muros is most distinguishable for the fact that it represents the most internationally oriented student population for any study program at Tilburg University.
Since Extra Muros is a study association, it does place an emphasis on academia and provides a range of activities in that dimension. An example of this, is The Last Lecture series at Tilburg University, in which a professor or public speaker gives a lecture as if it was their last.
However, the study association does not consist solely of academic events but also of social events such as drinks, band nights, and barbeques at which you can meet your fellow students in a more informal setting.
In this way, through social and academic activities, Extra Muros strives to provide a basis for Liberal Arts and Sciences students to fulfill all the needs that Liberal Arts students might have next to their studies, thus creating a fulfilling experience of student life for all its members.
