Chat with our students for their tips & tricks. You will find a pop-up at each bachelor programme page to chat with a student. We also recommend that you join EUR's Pre Academic Programme.

At university, you work much more independently than at secondary school. You have relatively few obligatory hours at university, so the rest of your education you will have to do with self-study and a lot of discipline. The biggest difference is that at university you focus on one or a few domains, while at secondary school you are involved in many different fields.

Fortunately, you don't just have to study hard. Your study time offers plenty of space and flexibility to get involved in things you find important! Think about making new friends, joining a study association, developing new skills and, of course, further discovering yourself and the world.

We believe it is important that every student can study to the best of their ability. To help you, there are various options you can make use of. These include student advisors, student psychologists and student deans. You can also get specific support if you have a disability. You will hear more about this during your study programme, but you can also take a look around on these pages:

We think it is important that you start your studies well by completing your first year with all credits. The advantage of this is that you start your second year with a clean slate. If you do not complete all your credits in your first year, you will receive a negative binding study advice, which means that you will not be allowed to continue the programme.

Of course, we will take your personal circumstances into account. If you are in doubt whether you will pass your first year, or if you need help with this, you can always contact the study advisor of your programme.

With a numerus fixus programme, the programme applies a limited number of places. This means that students have to go through a selection process. The selection procedure differs per programme and university. A handy overview to learn more about decentralised selection can be found on the studiekeuze123 website.
