Introduction and Orientation

Mandatory faculty and programme orientation and introduction activities prior to the start of the academic year. The exact dates will be announced as soon as possible.

Attendance is mandatory for everyone unless you have lectures scheduled at the same time. The focus of the day will be on information for international students studying in Rotterdam. Therefore, Dutch students may be exempted from attending after approval from the International Office. Nevertheless, if you wish to meet your fellow students right on the first day, you are more than welcome to join. 

Before the programme introduction, orientation/ introduction activities will be organised by the university for all new (international) students, so please plan to be in the Netherlands in time in order not to miss the activities you consider to be useful. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and learn new things.

If you are not participating in EUR events, please make sure you arrive in time to attend the programme's introduction day.
