Information systems and communication channels

As a student, you use many different systems. Think of CANVAS, MyEUR, Osiris and more. This page briefly highlights all of Erasmus MC's information systems and communication channels.  

General Education Systems

Canvas is Erasmus University's digital learning environment and is used in the Medicine and Research Masters programs. Canvas is mainly intended for educational information regarding themes and internships in Medicine and the subjects in the Research Masters. Each curriculum component has its own Canvas site and through the direct link with OSIRIS you are automatically registered for the correct courses. Here you can find an overview of all courses per academic year for the bachelor and master Medicine.
The Nanobiology, Clinical Technology and Technical Medicine programs use Brightspace, the digital learning environment at TU Delft (the leader of these programs).

Do you have practical questions about your studies? Then check the study information portal STiP for an answer to your question. For questions about STiP or its content, contact the Education Service Centre (OSC), their contact information can be found in STiP.

OSIRIS is the study progress system of the EUR. On OSIRIS, students can register for (re)exams, view their study progress (grades obtained, education and examination programs yet to be completed, etc.), request various (English) grade overviews, see in which study group he/she has been placed (via 'Enroll', 'Enrollment Overview'), etc. Enrollment codes for examinations can be found in the overview of the examination program or in the study progress overview. Important messages are also regularly sent by the OSC via OSIRIS.

The CIS is Erasmus MC's Curriculum Information System. It is a management system that records all educational activities of the program to support various education-related processes. CIS is used for Medicine and some Research Masters to manage educational content and related meta-information, such as content descriptions, learning objectives, keywords, teachers involved and logistical information.

CIS is directly accessible to faculty via a login. Topic books and course manuals are generated from CIS and posted on Canvas. Students can search the CIS through Canvas using the "Search curriculum" button.

Teaching timetables can be found in STiP (general overview) or via My Timetables (personal timetable). Read the manual on STiP on how to set up your own personal timetable.

For students with disabilities, ReadSpeaker's text reading software TextAid is available through EUR. Request a TextAid account at or see the EUR site.
