During your studies

International Bachelor in Psychology

Truly international

The Bachelor programme in Psychology at Erasmus University Rotterdam is a truly international programme with a diverse student population. In the infographic below you’ll see the nationalities of over 150 admitted applicants of the year 2016-2017.

Studying abroad

Studying abroad is a unique opportunity to develop yourself and get to know another culture, as well as compare different educational and academic cultures. This is a wonderful experience which does not need to be complicated or expensive and does not delay your studies.

This programme encourages you to spend a term (the first part of year 3) outside the Netherlands in the third year. You will be able to study at one of the universities with which we have exchange cooperation.  More information about destinations, the conditions for going on an exchange, registration and selection procedures are available here.  

Student testimonial

Felix Schnieder

"I decided to study Psychology when I realised how important this field is within the business world. I have always been very interested in human behaviour and I was keen to understand it better by getting to know the theories behind it."


"Psychology at Erasmus University Rotterdam has an excellent reputation. I'm looking forward to being able to specialise in Work and Organisational Psychology during my bachelor. This gives me the opportunity to specialise very early on.

My worries about studying in a new language quickly disappeared, as the Problem-Based Learning approach in small groups allowed me to really get used to the language quickly and to study the material in depth. The tutors and professors encourage me to be on top of my workload."
