Academic year 2019-2020

Courses at ESSB

The course descriptions can be found by clicking on the course names. For most courses the timetables are incorporated in the course description. All course descriptions can be found in the Course Guide. The course guides for each academic year are available around the end of July preceding that academic year. Please have a look at the Academic Calendar of ESSB.

Attention: In blocks 1 and 2 of the academic calendar of ESSB, minors are offered. These are clusters of courses (15 ECTS) that are related to a certain topic. The courses within the minor do not overlap in the time schedule. Minors of ESSB are only open to exchange students of this faculty. ESSB exchange students cannot take minors at other faculties.

The regular study load is 60 EC per year and our degree students would follow 1 course per block but since Academic Calendar do not always align exchange students might have to follow two courses in parallel. Please be aware that if you are only attending the fall (first) semester at Erasmus University Rotterdam, by default you are only attending courses in block 1-3; spring (second) semester means block 4-8. Also, please be aware that the courses that are 15 EC (minors), will take up both block 1 and 2.
