Admission Requirements

Erasmus University College (EUC) welcomes applicants who are highly motivated, academically strong, and curious and open-minded. We strive for a diverse student body who are committed to expanding their intellectual horizons through a Liberal Arts & Sciences education. We evaluate applicants holistically, focusing not only on academic track record but also on motivation for the programme.

Motivation and curriculum vitae

We would like to hear from you about why you are motivated to study at EUC. In your application letter, please provide us with examples of your academic and non-academic interests and how they align with a Liberal Arts & Sciences education, so we can find out if our programme is a likely match for you. 

Your motivation letter (in English, maximum 600 words, please use the template that you can download below) should answer the following questions:

  1. What makes you a good candidate for successfully pursuing a Liberal Arts & Sciences degree?
  2. Why do you want to study Liberal Arts & Sciences at EUC?
  3. What additional information would you like the admissions officer to know when considering your application? (excluded from the word count)

    We also ask you to add a curriculum vitae (in English, maximum of two pages) to your application to provide us with more information about your educational background, your work experience, and your interests

    Secondary school diploma

    You are eligible for admission to EUC if you have obtained or will obtain a Dutch VWO diploma or a foreign equivalent to the VWO diploma (for example an International Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate, German Abitur, or British A Levels). Since a number of our courses cover mathematics and statistics, mathematics proficiency is necessary for success in our programme. Additionally, since our programme is taught fully in English, proficiency in English is a strict requirement.

    In the list below, you will find our admission requirements per secondary school diploma. If your diploma is not on the list, then don’t hesitate to contact our admissions office, as you may still be eligible for admission. If you don't meet the requirements, then there are several additional tests that you can take to demonstrate your academic capabilities:

    • Mathematics test: You can take a mathematics test if you don't meet the mathematics requirement.

    • 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. You can use the institution code C217 to have your score report sent to us.
      IELTS Academic: 7,0 with minimum subscores of 6,0
      C2 Proficiency or C1 Advanced: minimum overall score of 185
      Test scores older than two years are no longer considered valid by EUC.
    • SAT or ACT: You can take one of these tests if you don't meet the average grade requirement AND/OR the mathematics requirement. Required scores:

      SAT: minimum total score of 1170 with minimum section score of 570 for Math. You can use the college code 7443 to have your score report sent to us.
      ACT: minimum composite score of 27 with minimum score of 27 for Math. You can use the college code 7819 to have your score report sent to us. 
      Test scores older than two years are no longer considered valid by EUC.

    Please note that the above-mentioned scores don't automatically qualify you for admission to EUC. We evaluate applicants holistically and on an individual basis.
