Liberal Arts & Sciences (EUC)
Bachelor in Liberal Arts & Sciences
A small-scale, intensive and residential approach to Liberal Arts & Sciences.
Erasmus University College (EUC) empowers students to face the challenges arising from an increasingly globalizing and interconnecting world, technological advances and environmental change.
For this we offer a Liberal Arts & Sciences programme, including multidisciplinary courses which are problem-based throughout. At the centre of this approach is our hallmark: tutored groups of 10 students.
To create a 24/7 academic environment we require EUC students to work and live at tailor-made facilities in the centre of Rotterdam. Extra-curricular activities are as much part of the programme as attending lectures and tutorials.

Share your personal profile in your application!
Our selection process considers both early and regular applications. Use the former if you want to be at the forefront of the ‘Class of 2016’ and get a say in the final details of preparing Erasmus University College! But don’t worry that we will have run out of spots before the regular deadline.
We first check if applicants match or exceed general entry requirements. Then we generate a ranked list of applicants, based on their accomplishments and motivation. We invite everyone on our list for a (face to face or long-distance) interview to check if expectations match. Admission is offered in order of ranking on the resulting list. This stops when enrolment hits our capacity (or when our shortlist ends).
Having obtained a Bachelor's degree, many students opt to pursue a Master’s degree. Our unique curriculum structure offers gradual specialisation from the Academic Core, to the Major, then the Concentration and finally the Capstone. More than 35 Master’s degree programmes at Erasmus University Rotterdam may offer a warm welcome for Erasmus University College students.
