What are institutional codes, and which can I use for Erasmus University Rotterdam?

Institutional codes are unique numeric codes that are assigned to all institutes participating in entrance exams. Giving each institution a unique institution code is done to help both the students and the administrators of the exams in keeping the test data and test results organized. You will need the unique code at the time of registering for the exam.
