The aim of this 12-month programme is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge about leadership through field projects and small-scale sessions. The Leadership programme is society-oriented and requires strong commitment and analytical skills.
What are the application criteria? Following the first semester of the first year, students at EUC whose academic performance is in the top 10% of their class will be invited to apply for the Leadership Programme.
Master Classes are intensive and interactive sessions in which experts in the field present students with their knowledge and discuss issues relevant to their profession. We have had guest speakers from various fields such as business, politics, arts, or academia. Some of those prominent lecturers were Prof. Dr. Richard Staring, Professor of the Department of Criminology at Erasmus School, and Prof. Dr. Carol Greider - Director of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
EUC partners with more than 25 universities worldwide located mainly in Europe, Asia and North America.
The selection for exchange is based on academic performance, availability as well as other criteria.

Furthermore, in case the student successfully completes the language course, EUC will reimburse the course fee (excluding costs for intake, reading materials, and the exam fee) up to €300, - per year.
Arts & Culture Programme
The Arts & Culture Programme is a one-year, extra-curricular programme exclusively offered at EUC, which provides students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich and vibrant arts and culture sector of Rotterdam, as well as engage with many different artistic disciplines.
