Admission Requirements

Erasmus University College (EUC) welcomes applicants that are academically strong, highly motivated, and internationally oriented. We strive for a diverse international classroom with excellent academic performance. We evaluate applicants holistically, focusing not only on academic track record but also on motivation for the programme and international background.

Motivation Letter and Curriculum Vitae

We would like to hear from you why you are motivated to study at EUC. In your motivation letter, you can clarify why you feel that EUC is the right place for you, so that we can find out if you are the kind of student that we are looking for. 

Your motivation letter (max. 700 words, in English) must provide us with answers to the following questions:

  • Why do you want to study Liberal Arts & Sciences?
  • Why do you want to study at EUC as opposed to another university college?
  • Why does problem-based learning appeal to you?
  • In what way does an internationally oriented education fit your profile?
  • How will you contribute to the EUC community?
  • What makes you an excellent candidate?

Your curriculum vitae (in English) allows you to give us an idea of your educational background, your work experience, and your hobbies and interests.

Secondary School Diploma

You are admissible to our programme if you have obtained or will obtain a VWO diploma or a foreign equivalent to the VWO diploma (for example, International Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate, German Abitur, or British A Levels). Additionally, since a number of our courses cover mathematics and statistics, mathematics proficiency is vital for success in our programme. Further, since our programme is completely taught in English, English language proficiency is a strict requirement.

The list below shows the requirements for your secondary school diploma. If your diploma is not on the list, then don’t hesitate to contact our Admissions Officer, Bertien Kuiper, as you may still be admissible. If you don't meet the requirements, then there are several tests that you can take to demonstrate that you do meet the requirements:

  • EUC mathematics test : you can take this test if you don't meet the mathematics requirement. Required score: passing grade. You will receive more information about the EUC mathematics test after you have submitted your application.

  • English language proficiency test: you can take one of four tests if you don't meet the English requirement. Required scores:

    TOEFL-iBT: 100 with minimum subscores of 20
    IELTS Academic: 7,0 with minimum subscores of 6,0
    CPE or CAE: minimum overall score of 185
  • SAT or ACT: you can take one of these tests if you don't meet our average grade requirement AND/OR our mathematics requirement. Minimum scores:

    SAT: minimum total score of 1170 with minimum section score of 570 for Math
    ACT: minimum composite score of 27 with minimum score of 27 for Mathematics
    SAT/ACT scores older than 2 years are no longer considered valid by EUC.

Please note that the abovementioned minimum scores do not automatically qualify you for selection to the programme. The scores are merely guidelines. We evaluate applications holistically and on an individual basis.
