Introduction School

Take-Off for Bachelor students

The Take-Off is the introduction event for all new students of Erasmus School of Economics.

This year, the Take-Off will take place on Monday 4 September 2017.

During this introduction event, you will receive an introduction to your study programme, our faculty as well as meeting your fellow students. In addition you will receive information about your study books, course registration, your timetable and the use of your ERNA account. Study books you will be able to buy, with a discount, via the booksale of EFR or FAECTOR which take place in the first week of the academic year.


After your application is completed you will receive a welcome email, but to prepare for you first day you can download your schedule here:

Note: These schedules are published with some reservations.

Diagnostic entrance test 

During Monday afternoon at the Take Off, you have to make a diagnostic entrance test to evaluate your own level in mathematics. You should not prepare in any way for this test and the score does not count in any way for your study results. The purpose of the test is to assess your entry level, which may vary depending on your high school programme in mathematics. If you find some topics difficult then it is good to realize this right at the start, and during the first block you can use some additional exercise material to help you in achieving the right mathematical level when needed.

More information

The Take-Off is mandatory for all first year bachelor students.

It is important to be at the central hall of the Theil-building (C-Hall) on time for your registration! Click here for a map of the campus.
