One of the character traits that define Rotterdam students is their high level of activity and that they are not afraid to work hard. They are actively involved in all sorts of consulting associations and often have on the side jobs as student assistants to professors or in the administrative division of the faculty. Their contribution keeps the faculty on their toes and allows them to incorporate the students’ opinions.
The character of the students is also represented in the presence of the active faculty and study associations.
Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR)
The Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR), established in 1964, is one of the largest and most active faculty associations in the Netherlands. The mission of EFR is to bridge the gap between theory and practice. EFR organises study related activities for economically orientated students at the Erasmus University Rotterdam and aims to provide students with a unique experience.
Each year, we organise various activities and events for students of the Erasmus School of Economics, as well as other students of the Erasmus University. Among other things, we offer the cheapest books, free summaries, and organise social events to help students feel at home in Rotterdam. We also help prepare you for the labour market, bring you in touch with your future employer, and enhance your student experience.
Especially for first year students EFR organises an introduction weekend, drinks, city trips and many other activities. Other large-scale events that the EFR organizes are:
- The national political debate, during election years in the Netherlands
- EFR Inspiration Days with many inspiring speakers
- Model United Nations Rotterdam
- Master Career Week and Erasmus Recruitment
