Admission and application bachelor

You’re looking to do a bachelor programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). This is your* to-do list:
*For refugee students in the Netherlands other procedures may apply
 

  • Each EUR bachelor programme has its own specific admission requirements and procedure you’ll need to meet and follow. And of course you’ll need to make our deadlines!

    Let’s check the information page of the bachelor programme of your choice to find everything out:

    *Applicants for programmes taught in Dutch must pass the NT2-II-exam or the Dutch entrance exam of the Colloquium Doctum depending on the programme to show that they have a sufficient command of the Dutch language. 

  • There might be extra tests you can take to supplement your previous education.

    If this is possible, you’ll be informed about this on the page with admission requirements of the bachelor programme of your choice (see above under 1).

  • You chose your programme, you meet the requirements, but can you afford it? Before applying, do yourself a favour and have a good look at your financial situation.

    Non-EU/EEA students: don’t forget the costs & timings for an immigration procedure.

  • Because of the selective nature of all EUR international bachelor programmes, meeting the requirements doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be selected. After you have submitted your application, your grades, and motivation, it will all be considered for the selection procedure.

    If you have not yet completed your secondary school education, please ask your school counsellor to complete this diploma statement.

    So go ahead and apply for admission, following the procedure described on the website of the programme of your choice:

    *Applicants for programmes taught in Dutch must pass the NT2-II-exam or the Dutch entrance exam of the Colloquium Doctum depending on the programme to show that they have a sufficient command of the Dutch language.

    • Entry requirements and selection procedures for each programme at the EUR are decided by the programmes themselves. They differ per programme, and may also differ per year. Therefore we are forwarding you straight to the programme page itself for any information on the admission process. The most up to date information on entry requirements and selection procedures is to be found right there.

      Didn’t find the answers to your questions on the programme page? Contact information for the programme of your choice* can also be found on the programme page. Feel free to contact them with any doubts on programme-specific procedures!

      *Will you be doing the International Bachelor Arts and Culture Studies (IBACS), the International Bachelor Communication and Media (IBCoM) or International Bachelor History (IBH)? Then you can contact us directly.

    • Like entry requirements and selection procedures, application deadlines vary per programme. Therefore please check the page of the programme of your choice to find the correct dates.

      Didn’t find the deadlines on the programme page? Contact information for the programme of your choice can also be found on the programme page. Feel free to contact them with any doubts on programme-specific procedures.

    • For the Dutch-taught bachelor programmes we aim to inform you about your admissibility in two weeks. For the English-taught programmes it differs per programme. Please consult the programme page of the programme of your choice to find more information on the application procedures.

    • Institutional codes are unique numeric codes that are assigned to all institutes participating in entrance exams. Giving each institution a unique institution code is done to help both the students and the administrators of the exams in keeping the test data and test results organized. You will need the unique code at the time of registering for the exam.
