Campus facilities

RSM is located on the main Erasmus University campus near the centre of Rotterdam. You can use campus facilities such as the library, sports centre and food courts for your academic and social activities.

Electives

Students from other EUR-faculties and/or from other Dutch research universities enrolled in English-taught Bachelor programmes can follow elective courses at RSM if they meet the requirements. Students can only follow the specific courses mentioned on the form. Please note: the application must be sent to us at least one month before the start of the course.

If you are an EUR student, you can use this registration form.

If you are a student from another university, please follow the steps in this document.

Unfortunately, it is still not clear for all IBA-courses how they will be organized in 2020-2021. Due to the new curriculum and the COVID-19 measures whereby education must be given (partly) online, course coordinators have to adjust their courses accordingly. We can therefore only evaluate the elective options per block / trimester and will select our elective courses a few weeks before the start of the block / trimester. When the available elective courses are known, we will update the documents on this page.

Student activities

There are many activities that you can engage in to enrich your time alongside your studies. The most common ones among RSM students include those organised by study association STAR.

Rotterdam as a place to study

Most well-known for being the largest port in Europe, there are many reasons why Rotterdam is appealing to business students, from vibrant and cultural events to internship opportunities.

Visa

Depending on your nationality, you might need an entry visa or residence permit for the Netherlands. To ensure that the process goes well, please read through the visa information to prepare.
