Students who want to study abroad should:

  1. Be enrolled as a fulltime student at Erasmus School of Economics.
    • This will be checked in September
    • If you want to go abroad after passing all courses (usually master students), make sure to discuss with your thesis coordinator how you can delay your graduation
  2. Have passed all subjects from their first bachelor year (60 credits, BSA) upon application. Regarding courses of your BSA, compensated courses are considered as passed courses.
  3. Have a weighted average grade of at least a 7.0 of their academic record to apply for destinations outside the EU. This average grade is based upon the courses as follows:

    • Bachelor students: all courses from the first bachelor year and the first block of the second bachelor year
    • BSc² students: all courses from the first and second bachelor year and the first block of the third bachelor year
    • Master students: all courses from the first block of your master’s programme at Erasmus School of Economics
    • Important change for Bachelor students applying in 2020/2021 (to go on exchange in 2021/2022) and onwards: only first year courses counting towards your BSA will be used to calculate the weighted average grade. This means grades obtained in your first year will be used, grades from resits of first year courses obtained in your second or third year will not be taken into account.
  4. Only grades obtained at Erasmus School of Economics will be included. This calculation excludes courses for which you received an exemption. Non-rounded grades will always be used. The calculation is the same for both the fall and spring semester.

  5. Meet the language requirements of the partner university.
    • Some host universities require that our students take a language test such as a TOEFL or IELTS test upon application. It is the student's own responsibility to find out about the language requirements of the host university. You do not need to show language proficiency test results upon the time of application at Erasmus School of Economics, only upon the application at the host university.
