The Netherlands is among the safest countries in the world, according to the Global Peace Index. Rotterdam, like other major cities in the Netherlands, is open to a diverse range of cultures and people. Rotterdam is a green city with dozens of parks. The Kralingse Bos is the biggest park of the city and is located close to Campus Woudestein. The cozy Vroesenpark is another must in the summer months.

Studying at Erasmus University

Erasmus University Rotterdam has campuses at four locations, three in Rotterdam and one in The Hague. In Rotterdam, students study, eat and play sports at an accessible, sustainable, circular and partly energy-neutral campus: Woudestein.

Dutch education is known for its high quality and standards, and top-ranking positions. Degrees obtained in the Netherlands are internationally recognised. The Netherlands is also one of the top providers of English taught courses. Our international classroom - a mix of international and Dutch students - is common across the university. In class, the atmosphere is usually informal, and it is pretty easy to speak to our professors directly.
