EUR Buddy Programme

Erasmus University Rotterdam and ESN-Rotterdam would like to welcome you in Rotterdam! The EUR Buddy Programme is in collaboration with all the Faculties at the university. A Buddy is a second, third or fourth year EUR student who is enthusiastic to meet new students from all over the world and to introduce them to university, Rotterdam and The Netherlands. Your Buddy will help you to set up your (student) life in Rotterdam. You could, for example, get assistance with finding supermarkets, doctors, registration at the city hall and many other practical matters. Besides, he or she can help you on a more social level, introducing you to new people and activities organized all over Rotterdam. The EUR Buddy Programme is linked to Erasmus Student Network. ESN creates an international community in Rotterdam of cultures from all over the world and promotes the integration into the Dutch culture.

Deadline Applications
Please sign up before August 31st to get a buddy. After this, the matching process will take longer and a buddy cannot be guaranteed. This is to be able to manage the group sizes of buddies, and to give the buddies clarity in the amount of students they have in their buddy group.
This is not a requirement, and is used to be able to make sure every group has many different nationalitities. If you wish not to fill in your nationality this will not affect your application to the buddy programme.
