Elite sports and university education
Erasmus University Rotterdam believes it is important that students are able to participate in elite sports activities. This is why, since 1991, special counselling has been offered to students participating in elite sports. Support provided by Erasmus Sport, the university itself and Rotterdam Topsport enables current and potential elite sports athletes to combine a successful career in sports with a university programme. This support comes in the form of extra counselling during their studies (from the Elite Sports coordinator, student counsellors and/or study advisors), use of sports facilities and, in exceptional cases, support in the form of a financial contribution.
Visit the Erasmus Sport website for more information on combining elite sports with an academic programme. An information package describing the various options can be found on this site as well.
