Admission

If you hold a Dutch diploma

You are eligible for the Bachelor programme if you hold:

  • A Dutch VWO diploma: all four profiles are eligible. For the profile Culture and Society, the courses Mathematics A 1, 2 or B 1 are compulsory. For all profiles, except Economics and Society, formally the course Economics 1 is compulsory, but students will get exempt for this course automatically.
  • A diploma from the 1st year of a 4-year HBO programme; or
  • A diploma from the 1st year at a Dutch university.

If you hold a non-Dutch diploma

You are eligible for the Bachelor programme if you hold one of the following diplomas:

  • International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma, including Math Standard or Math Higher;
  • European Baccalaureate (EB) diploma, including Mathematics with the required level of 3 hours;
  • Another secondary or high school diploma (Abitur, ASO, Attestat, Reifeprufung, etc.).

All non-Dutch diplomas have to be reviewed by the Erasmus University Admissions Office.

Proficiency in English is compulsory before a request for admission can be made. Proof must be presented by submitting the results from either a TOEFL test or IELTS test. For the Bachelor programme, the minimum required score for TOEFL is 550 (paper-based), 213 (computer-based) or 80 (internet-based); for IELTS the minimum required score is 6.0.

You are exempt from an English test if English is your mother tongue or if you have had English as your first language of secondary or higher education in a native English-speaking country.

If you have a deficiency in Mathematics, you can eliminate the deficiency by taking a Math Entrance Exam, which is offered several times a year at RSM Erasmus University.
Alternatively, you can qualify by taking a combination of both SAT-II Math Form IC and Calculus AP Form AB Exams. The required minimum score for SAT-II is 550 and for Calculus it is AP 3+.
