Information for parents
Note: The Eurekaweek is an event initiated by the Erasmus University and no forms of initiation, hazing or ragging will take place during this week!
The Eurekaweek is the official introduction week of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. The step towards University is often seen as a big one. Your son/daughter will start a new chapter in their life and probably is not accustomed to the life in Rotterdam/the Netherlands yet. For this reason we organize the Eurekaweek. During this week, new students will be introduced to the University, their fellow students and the city of Rotterdam.
This year the Eurekaweek will take place from the 16th until the 19th of August. The official program will start every day at 11.00, and end at 23.00. During the Eurekaweek we will organize various activities to introduce our participants to the city, their studies and the student life in Rotterdam. Therefore its desirable that your son/daughter will participate in all of these activities since this is the best way for them to start their time at the EUR.
Prior to the Eurekaweek your son/daughter will be assigned to a group consisting of approximately 15 students from the same study program. The entire week they will be guided by two guides, who are senior students of mostly the same study program.
