Electives for non-EUR students

Are you studying at a different university? Other students can (occasionally) follow an elective at the ESHCC. Please note: 

  • The number of available spots per course is limited; students of the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication will get priority.
  • It is not possible to follow a course at the Media & Communication department if you are not studying at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

How to register

  1. Examine the offering through the faculty websites (check out the links in the menu to the side).
  2. Some faculties will require documents (like a letter of consent from the Examination Board and/or a list of marks) for you to be able to apply for the electives. You can find an overview of the required documents on the faculty website (check out the links in the menu to the side).
  3. Sign into Studielink for the elective course of the faculty with which you want to take the electives. Search in Studielink for ‘Elective course’. 
  4. Once you've completed your enrolment request in Studielink, you'll receive an e-mail through your ERNA account within 24 hours.
  5. After receiving this e-mail, go to OSIRIS student via http://sis.eur.nl/student and sign in with your ERNA account.
  6. Click on 'Case' in OSIRIS, and subsequently hit 'Start a new case'. Select the case 'Requesting elective(s) as a non-EUR student'.
  7. In the case, you can select the electives that you'd like to take, upload any attachments, and finalise the submission of the request.
  8. After submitting your case, your request is assessed by the faculty. Please note: you need to go through all the steps for your request to be processed.
  9. In the meantime, send your Proof of Tuition Fee Payment of your own university to the EUR Student Administration (freepost number 2791, 3300 VB Rotterdam). This will allow you to be exempted from paying tuition fees. (Please note: if you are enrolled as a master student in a funded programme of another institution and want to take up an elective from a bachelor programme with us, you will require an enrolment in a bachelor programme that you've already payed the institutional rate for (you have already achieved your bachelor degree after all). This process can be costly.
  10. Upload your passport photo through the link you received in your email.

Attention

  • Timetable conflicts: make sure you check the timetable for the elective to see if it does not have any overlap with the schedules of your other courses.
  • The number of available spots per course is limited; students of the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication will get priority.
  • You should determine if you have enough knowledge on the subject to follow the course.
  • In case of a re-sit exam, students will need to register themselves through Osiris.
