Why study a Bachelor in Liberal Arts & Sciences at Erasmus University College in Rotterdam?

The Netherlands is home to a number of high-quality University Colleges, and we are often asked for help in understanding the differences. Here’s what we can tell you about where Erasmus University College (EUC) stands apart:

  • EUC’s active approach to education is called Problem Based Learning; we keep group sizes to about 10 students for tutorials, so you are always intensely involved in your education.
  • Working and studying in a gorgeously renovated landmark building in the very heart of a big city.
  • A Major in Economics & Business and a spin on the classics with a focus on the Life Sciences and Social and Behavioural Sciences, as well as Humanities.
  • A residential requirement to live together with your fellow first-year students from all over the world; helping build bonds in year one but leaving students independent in years two and three.
  • Close cooperation with more than 40 masters programmes at Erasmus University, including Pre-Law and Pre-Med tracks, to facilitate the connection upon graduation from EUC’s bachelor programme.
  • An intensive programme wherein you meet credit requirements already during your core courses, leaving the Winter and Summer terms for extra credits or exploration.
  • A unique balance of choice and structure, in which about one third of your courses are Academic Core requirements, one third are Major requirements, and the rest is up to you.
