Make a Move
Despite the international character of AIESEC, Make a Move focuses on students in Rotterdam who want to be one step ahead on the labour market. It is our mission to prepare and support you as a student during the whole orientation process towards getting that job you’ve always dreamed of. Through attending our events (The Future is Yours, Woman at the Top and the Make-a-Move career week) we’ll bring you in contact with top notch companies such as Unilever, Heineken and ABN-AMRO.
Part-time and full-time board positions
AIESEC Rotterdam also offers you the possibility of becoming active as a full-time or part-time board member in our Local Committee, giving you the opportunity to expand your network and develop yourself professionally. If you’re interested in joining the Exchange or Make a Move team, please feel free to come by our office in NB-09 or at our weekly drinks on Wednesday evening in Café de Beurs!
ESN (Erasmus Student Network)
Erasmus Student Network Rotterdam (ESN-Rotterdam) cooperates closely with the International Offices of all faculties, the Director of Student Facilities, Study- and Student Associations, and other relevant bodies within the Erasmus University Rotterdam to enhance the academic and social experience of international students in Rotterdam.
In this framework and with this purpose, ESN-Rotterdam strives to foster friendships that will transcend boundaries and will enlarge their professional and social network.
ESN-Rotterdam sees itself as an ambassador for our university and city, and through this we hope to enhance the experience of each international student, when studying and living in Rotterdam. In addition, ESN-Rotterdam wants to be a student organization that makes itself available to every international student, minimizing the threshold to join activities and contact the board for assistance.
As this novel student organization we would contribute to this experience, through:
- Integrate the international students in the society and the culture of Rotterdam, also in terms of linguistic tools and social opportunities;
- Bringing about the “Dutch Experience” through social activities;
- Evaluating the exchange experiences of international students and having their evaluation considered and appreciated by the competent institutions, in order to foster and influence the evolution of the exchange programmes and policies;
- Helping, in turn, other students to succeed in their exchange study and in overcoming the same difficulties and challenges they experienced.
IFMSA-Rotterdam is an organisation that is part of an international network of 92 countries. This network brings together over one million medical students worldwide. In our opinion it is useful for all people, but especially future physicians, to know about the health issues worldwide. IFMSA-Rotterdam tries to create more awareness about global health among students. We try do accomplish this goal by organising projects on local and national level, but some of them are internationally orientated. In addition, IFMSA-Rotterdam organises exchanges for medical students.

Foundation for work experience in developingcountries (Stola)
Are you interested in health care in developing countries? Have you always wanted to go to a Third World country? Well, then STOLA is something for you! This foundation has been managed by students within the medical faculty of the Erasmus MC since 1972. The foundation is engaged in tropical health care and development work. Fourth-year students can choose to do their “keuzeonderzoek” in Third World countries via the STOLA. Besides this, it also organises the “Tropencursus” twice a year for the second-, third- and fourth-year students. The course deals with the medical and non-medical aspect of the Third World in the form of lectures and workshops. The course counts towards “keuzeonderwijs” in the third-year of studies.
