Study Guidance

When you start your first academic year at the Erasmus School of Economics you will experience a lot new things and therefore might have a lot of questions. “ Where can I buy my books? Where are the lecture rooms? How do I register for examinations, tutorial groups, etc? How do I need to prepare my examination?”


To help you finding answers for all these questions Pre-Master students will be assigned a tutor. Your tutor is a student in his/her second or third year, who can tell you a lot about the study programme, the university and student life. With a group of around 15 other students you will have some meetings and personal conversations with your tutor. The purpose of Guidance is to find your way around the university as soon as possible. Your tutor can also advise you to arrange a meeting with a study adviser or a student dean.
