Student Welfare

Student welfare has become an important issue at Tilburg University. Below you will find information on where you can go for personal or study-related problems. 

Confidential contact person Magister JFT

Magister JFT wants its members to feel at home with the association. However, it can happen that you are not feeling well, have personal problems or have experienced something you don't want to talk about. The confidential contact person of Magister JFT is someone you can tell your story to in complete confidentiality. Our secretary, Esmay Wiegman, is this person. It can be difficult to talk about things that are bothering you, but Esmay would like to help you and listen to you. Esmay can also help you to see if you can get advice from someone else. 

Please contact Esmay at


Coronavirus telephone helpline

The telephone helpline is intended for Tilburg University students who are experiencing personal, mental or emotional problems as a result of the coronavirus. They can contact the helpline anonymously for a personal conversation and a listening ear, regarding questions that arise from the Coronavirus. The helpline also offers support for complaints, experiencing depressive feelings such as depression, brooding and anxiety, listlessness and fatigue, sleeping problems and stress, without obligation and anonymously.
