Binding Study Advice

Students need to have obtained at least 60 EC in EUC courses by the end of the first year of enrolment. A student also needs to attain an MLA of 55% to complete the first year.

Study Advice

The Examination Board will provide a student with interim study advice at the following intervals:

  • After the examinations in the second Quad of the first semester of their studies at EUC.
  • After the examinations in the first Quad of the second semester of their studies at EUC.

The Examination Board will give each student a definitive and Binding Study Advice after the examinations in the second semester of their studies at EUC. A dismissal means that a student, taking into account any personal circumstances, is not considered suitable for the programme due to his or her study results not meeting the required standards as explained in the previous article.

Students who are dismissed will be excluded from enrolling in the programme for three consecutive academic years.

Guidance

EUC ensures – within reason – that its students will have access to study guidance, including exploring possible study plans within the programme. EUC offers a student counselling service both for study guidance and personal matters. The study advice at the first interval may prompt the Student Counsellor to call a mandatory meeting with a student. In the case of a certain chance of study delay, the student is expected to amend her/his study plan, in consultation with his or her Student Counsellor.

Personal circumstances

The following personal circumstances are taken into account when issuing a study advice:

  • illness, functional disability or pregnancy of the student in question;
  • exceptional family circumstances;
  • positions for which the Erasmus University Rotterdam grants a scholarship; and
  • other circumstances, as referred to in the Implementing Decision (article 2.1 WHW).

Any student who, as a result of personal circumstances, can reasonably expect to incur study delays, is expected to report this as soon as possible to his or her Student Counsellor. Notification by a student is considered on time if made within four weeks after the onset of the circumstances. The aim of this is to limit any study delays. The Student Counsellor advises the Examination Board about a student’s personal circumstances that may influence the study advice given.
