Programme specific information

It’s very fruitful to familiarize yourself with the content of the programme before the academic year. Below you can have a look at the recommended reading list and suggestions for the programme you’re admitted to.  

Reading list for Masters in Psychology

Reading list for Masters in Sociology

Practical matters

In Holland, higher education is subsidized, which means that tuition fees can be kept relatively low, especially compared with the United Kingdom and the United States. Because of this, we do not have an extensive scholarship programme. This doesn't mean we don't have them at all though, so make sure to have a closer look. 

In August you will receive a welcome message with more information about the start of the academic year, preparations, introduction days and timetables. Please note that you will only receive this message after you have completed your enrolment. Therefore, make sure to complete your enrolment as soon as possible. 

You have received your personal ERNA username and password from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) with which you can log in to the electronic learning environment MyEUR and consult MyEUR ESSB. Do you want to know which information you can find where? Watch the animation video below: 

ESSB MyEUR

Within two weeks after the status of your enrolment in Studielink has changed to "enrolled", you will receive a digital student card and you can download a proof of enrolment. 

The timetable for the upcoming academic year will be available around mid-August. In the meantime, you can visit the EUR Course Guide to find more information about the courses in your study programme and have a look the timetable of the current academic year. You can check the timetable on the right-hand side.  

All compulsory literature can be found in the course description.  

No, you do not have to. For nominal education you are enrolled by the Educational Office. Only if you want to retake a course from a previous year, or do it later, you have to register for it yourself. You will be informed separately about this in due course. 

The courses you are going to take are published and visible in Canvas at the latest on the Wednesday before the start of the course. 

On MyEUR ESSB you will find all the information you need if you are fully enrolled as a student and are about to start your studies. 

For example, the following information can be found on MyEUR ESSB

  • BSA (binding study advice) 

  • Compensation scheme 

  • Resits 

  • Register for exams

The letter of admission you receive from us is valid for one year. In case you wish to start our master programme one year later, we will be happy to postpone your admission – but only once. You only need to re-apply next academic year and add the scan of the offer of admission you received (the email with the offer of admission).  

If you decide to re-apply for another year, we can assure you, that you won't be competing with other applicants. You have already been admitted to our programme, therefore admission will be granted to you again if you decide to re-apply.
