Exchange programmes and courses

Experience cosmopolitan Rotterdam

Erasmus University Rotterdam offers international students in their 3rd year of university the possibility to participate in specialised non-degree courses, either as an exchange student or as a freemover. This is your chance to upgrade your degree and enjoy the vibrant student life in the city of Rotterdam.

Exchange students

Exchange students can take non-degree courses within the framework of an exchange programme such as the Socrates-Erasmus programme of the European Commission, or a bilateral agreement. For an overview of the universities with which we have such an agreement please see partner universities.
