Gathering information

At the start of the orientation process, it is recommended to visit your faculty’s website and have an extensive look at the Nuffic (Netherlands Organisation for International Cooperation in Higher Education) website. Your faculty’s international office will be able to answer specific questions and provide you with detailed information about partner institutions.

Faculty's international office

The orientation process can be a particularly good time to contact the international office at your own faculty. They can answer specific questions and give you detailed information about the EUR partner institutions. On the faculty's international office's website dates will be announced for specific information sessions and for applications of the selection procedures.

Information fair and sessions

Studying & Internships Abroad Fair

Each year in October, the International Office Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) and the international offices of the faculties organise the “Studying and Internships Abroad Fair ”. At this fair, you will find information about study exchange, international internships, language courses, volunteer work and scholarships. The fair of last year took place on 31 October 2017.

Multiple information sessions throughout the year

  • Each year at the end of the year, the International Office EUR organises an information session about studying abroad after your studies (complete study programmes after your Bachelor’s or Master’s). It includes presentations by Nuffic (on financing), the Fulbright Center (on studying in the US) and other organisations. Please note that it is only for Dutch students and that it is not relevant for exchange students. The presentation of last year took place at 30 November 2017.

Studying abroad with a functional impairment

If you have a functional impairment and you would like to study abroad, you might need extra facilities. Please check this website or for more information.

Within the Erasmus+ programme, special attention is given to students who have specific needs due to their functional impairment. If these needs are costly and thus hinder you from going abroad, it may be possible to get extra financing from the Erasmus+ programme.  For more information, contact your faculty's international office or email
