Application procedure

Academic staff members are welcome to come to the Culture Studies program for teaching placements and research.
Incoming academic staff members should apply for the Staff Exchange program by following the following steps.


Step 1:
Check  the list of partner universities which have an agreement with the Culture Studies programs  for staff exchange.

Step 3:
Check the list of courses (including staff information). These courses are open for guest lecturers. However, approval of the main lecturer is required.

Step 4:
Fill in the application form. To apply for the Staff Exchange program we will need the following documents:

  • CV
  • Teaching / Research plan

Because the guest lectures and research at the ESHCC have to fit into the schedule, we will need to receive the application well in advance.
The deadline is 1 April 2014 (for Staff Exchange during the academic year 2014-2015).
Applications past this deadline will be taken into consideration, but it will be more difficult to fit the plans into our program. Therefore the application might be refused.

The application form will be send to the International Office. The international officer will discuss the proposal with the involved academic staff member and the program director.
The International Office will contact you about the possibilities for Staff Exchange within 2 weeks after you have sent in the application form.

If your university does not have a staff exchange agreement with the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication:

Placements are not limited to current Erasmus partners, though a bilateral agreement between the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication and the European Institution needs to be in place.
If you would like to set up and Staff Exchange agreement between your own program/university and the ESHCC, please contact the International Office. The International Office will contact the International Office of your home university and discuss the possibilities.

Step 5:
After you have been accepted, you will receive a Letter of Acceptance from the International Office.
You will then need to make arrangements to come to the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Please ask the International Office of your home university about the application for the Erasmus Grant or any other mobility grant.
The International Office can help you with accommodation and getting around in Rotterdam and the Netherlands. You can also contact the International Officer to receive a guest account for the information systems for the use of Blackboard (student information system at the Erasmus University Rotterdam).

Step 6:
Once you are at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication, the International Office will sign the documents you will need for the Erasmus Grant or other mobility grants.
Information for the Erasmus Grant: the Erasmus Code of the Erasmus University Rotterdam is NL Rotterd01.
