Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) is a highly ranked, international research university, based in the dynamic and diverse city of Rotterdam. Founded in 1913, it is currently one the biggest universities of the Netherlands with a student population of 23,000 and a research community of circa 1,400. Scholars and students in seven faculties and two institutions work on global social challenges in the areas of: health, wealth, governance and culture.
As part of a large global network of academic partnerships, in strategic alliance with Leiden University and Delft University of Technology and in a unique collaboration with city and port, the dynamic city of Rotterdam serves as our laboratory. The quality of research at Erasmus University, named after Rotterdam-born humanist and theologian Erasmus, is reflected in its consistent top-100 position in most major universities rankings. On the lively, modern campus, students and scholars of more than 100 nationalities are constantly encouraged to develop their talents and meet their ambition. To support excellent research and project activities EUR has its international liaison office in Brussels, and specialised project administration staff at each large faculty.


The quality assurance adopted by Erasmus University Rotterdam consists of an internal, cyclical six-year process which ties in with the external assessments carried out successively by QANU (Quality Assessment Netherlands Universities) and NVAO (Netherlands-Flanders Accreditation Organisation).
