Upon return

After returning to The Netherlands you need to make some last arrangements in order to finish your exchange period.

Academic transcript

Usually your host university will send your academic transcript to Erasmus School of Economics, addressed to the exchange coordinator. We will notify you as soon as the academic transcript has arrived. You can then collect your transcript at the Information Desk in the Tinbergen Building, office H6-02.  

Bringing in courses in your Bachelor's programme

All students need to obtain 24 ECTS within the exchange programme. The courses need to be part of the curriculum provided by the partner university. After your return there are two ways to bring in the courses you have done abroad.

1. Incorporating courses into elective space

In order to bring in the courses as electives, you need to submit a request to the Examination Board. The Examination Board will process your request. Please note that, instead of a grade, a student will obtain a PASS on the grade list for 'International Exchange' with the amount of ECTS credits that need to be incorporated. Pay special attention to the following aspects:

  • Give at least the following information in your explanation:
  • Attach the following documents to your request: relevant supportive information, such as a grade list or course literature.

2. As an exemption from an obligatory course

If you want to bring in courses you have completed abroad as an exemption from an obligatory course, you will need permission of the Examination Board of Erasmus School of Economics. You need to submit a request to the Examination Board. In case the Examination Board does not grant you an exemption, you can still bring in the courses as electives, read the info above.

The rules and regulations of the Examination Board can found on the start page.  

Student report

You need to write a student report about your exchange. A description of your preparation and findings is useful for the Education Service Centre as well as for other students who are interested in going on exchange to the same destination. Therefore we will publish all student reports on our website. 

Please send your student report to: exchange-students@ese.eur.nl.
