International staff at EUR

Welcome at Erasmus University Rotterdam. An excellent university (ranking in the top 100 universities globally), in a vibrant ‘must see’ city (check out Lonely Planet’s 10 top cities), in a country with the best work-life balance in the world valued at a staggering 9.3 (see the OECD better life index). So it is not surprising that the number of international employees at Erasmus University Rotterdam has grown in recent years. This growth will continue in the coming years, in light of the EUR’s ambitions for an international campus. The information on this website is intended to prepare both EUR employees and international employees themselves for their arrival.

Using the checklist, you can gain insight into which procedures must be completed to formalise your stay in the Netherlands. Or you can download the 'Welcome2NLResearch' from the App Store and Google Play. The app generates a tailor-made list of the various arrangements to be made before or after your arrival in the Netherlands. It also generates a checklist of the various documents needed for the necessary formalities.  

Once you have arrived in the Netherlands there are a lot of things that need to be arranged. This website will provide you with the necessary assistance to make your stay in the Netherlands as pleasant as possible.

Should you have any questions about information on this website or suggestions for improvement, please mail to
