Admission Requirements

Current facets (Pre-Master)

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 and curriculum vitae

We would like to hear from you why you are motivated to study at EUC. In your motivation, 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, in English, must provide us with answers to the following questions:

  1. What are you looking for in a Liberal Arts & Sciences degree, and why do you want to study for it at EUC?
  2. What do you aspire towards, and why is EUC a good starting point?
  3. What are you looking for in the EUC community? How would you imagine your role in the community?
  4. How will you contribute to a positive learning environment?
  5. How does your background and experience in life shape the way you view the world?
  6. What kind of diversity are you looking for at EUC? Why do you think this is important?

Important: By clicking the "Your motivation" button below, you can download the template to write down your motivation. Type your responses to the questions in the textboxes. Please answer all questions. Your application will not be considered if any answers are missing. Once you have finished, save the document and upload it to the Admissions Portal.

    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. 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 our average grade requirement AND/OR our 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 abovementioned minimum scores don't automatically qualify you for admission to the programme. The scores are merely guidelines. We evaluate applications holistically and on an individual basis.
