Erasmus University College

Liberal Arts & Sciences, B.Sc.


A small group, intensive and residential approach to Liberal Arts & Sciences.

Erasmus University College (EUC) offers a three-year Bachelor's degree programme (BSc) in the Liberal Arts and Sciences. Think of the programme as breadth plus depth, where you're challenged to explore many areas of academia to build perspective and connections between disciplines. You're taught in the academic skills to put your knowledge to work. And ultimately you specialize in an area, one of our four 'Majors', that will prepare you for a Master's degree programme or career path in one of 1,000 directions. EUC's four departments are: * Life Sciences * Humanities * Economics and Business * Social and Behavioural Sciences


Accredited by: NVAO in: Netherlands

The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

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) with an average of 70% of the total grade . 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.

As a whole, we are looking for future Erasmus University College students, who:

  • are talented in any way (f.e. arts, sports, music)
  • have international roots or affinity (f.e. international schools, extensive travelling, Cambridge English)
  • act on social responsibility
  • excel in one or more aspects of school
  • look for new experiences

Attending university is one of the most important decisions a person can make. It usually comes with quite a price tag too. We understand that affordability can be a challenge. Here are the options we offer to help on a financial level:
  • Third Party Study Grant - Depending on your nationality and financial status there are various forms of financial aid available. Nuffic has compiled a list of third party financial aid via their Grantfinder webpage.
  • Dutch Government Study Finance - Most Dutch students will have access to a study loan and some to a supplementary study grant (‘studiefinanciering’), from the Dutch state. Under certain conditions non-Dutch, European students may also be eligible for such study finance.
  • Holland Scholarship - A limited number of scholarships is available for international, non-European students
  • Rotterdam Talent Scholarship - For students who live and go to school within the municipality of Rotterdam who can prove a need for substantial financial assistance.
  • EUC Work Grant - For non-Dutch, European students who can prove a need for substaintial financial assistance. Work-grants are valid for one year only, and there is a limited number available.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
