Courses for incoming exchange students

Course list Incoming exchange students

* Non-ESHCC exchange students can register on this website

This page lists the courses for History, Arts & Culture Studies and Media & Communication courses available in term 2,3 and 4 of 2021-2022. Students who are on campus, will be able to follow physical classes (lectures and tutorials). Online exchange students are welcome to travel to Rotterdam and follow the same classes on campus. If this is not possible, you can choose a limited number of courses we will offer online. 

More information on the content of the courses can be found by searching the course on the basis of the course code (CHxxx or CCxxx or CMxxxx) in the EUR Course Catalog. Also make sure to review the Study Information page for more insights into the workload, grading, rules, etc. Please note that ESHCC’s education is based on small interactive classes - therefore capacity is limited and attendance to almost all courses is mandatory. If you are a master student and interested in our graduate courses, please contact your exchange coordinator.

Instructions on how to register can be found at the bottom of this page. Before you continue, please make sure you carefully read the requirements below.
