How can I sit the colloquium doctum exam?
You must fill in an application form for the colloquium doctum. Take care: there is a separate application form for holders of foreign diplomas.
Enclose the following with the form:
- Proof of registration in the Municipal population register (extract from the population register) or a copy of relevant pages from your passport.
- Any certified photocopies of certificates and lists of marks. Based on these, an assessment can be made as to whether to grant you exemption from specific subjects of the colloquium doctum.
Where should I submit the application form?
Except for medical studies, you should submit all application forms to the address given below:
Examination Office, EB-29 (mention colloquium doctum and name of study programme)
PO Box 1738
3000 DR Rotterdam
For the medicine programme, send applications to:
Education Service Centre
Attn.: CTBG Secretariat, Room EE-310
PO Box 2040

What does the colloquium doctum exam cost?
With your application, you agree to pay a €70.00 (1-9-2013: € 120) administrative fee (regardless of the number of subjects). You must pay this amount three weeks before taking the entry exam, by means of a one-off standing order. If collection fails, you may pay the administrative fee up to one week prior to taking the entry exam (only by switch card) at the Erasmus Student Service Centre (Woudenstein location, E-building, E-hall). Fees are not refundable.
How will I know where and when the exams are scheduled to take place?
You will be informed by letter several weeks before the colloquium doctum. This letter also serves as confirmation of your application. You should take the letter with you to the exam! The colloquium doctum exams are held twice a year (May and July) in the M-building on the Burg.Oudlaan 50, Rotterdam.
When will I receive the results of the exam?
You will be notified of the results in writing within four weeks after taking the exam.
How do I apply for a resit?
You are entitled to resit the exam twice per calendar year (one exam in May and one exam in July). If the marks in May are unsatisfactory, we automatically register you to take the test in July. If you receive unsatisfactory marks in May and July, you may register to retake the exam during the next calendar year. You must again follow the procedure given above.
What happens when I pass the exams?
When you pass the colloquium doctum, you are not automatically eligible for a study programme of your choice. You must personally initiate the registration process. For the main outlines, see http://www.eur.nl/bachelor/ and for the details, http://www.eur.nl/inschrijven
For programmes with a numerus clausus, you must show (written) confirmation of admission from DUO (Diploma Recognition & Legalisation Service). To obtain this, you must contact DUO no later than 15 May.
