Eurekaweek 2021

The Eurekaweek takes place this year from the 16th till the 19th of August. On this page you will find the latest updates regarding the program.

We are happy to notice that you are interested in registering for the Eurekaweek. We can imagine that you are curious to find out how the program is going to look like. We are working with different scenarios, so it depends on the restrictions in August what the final program is going to look like. Here is a small overview of the different elements that we will include in our program.

The Eurekaweek consists of four key elements:

  • Getting to know the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
  • Getting to know the city of Rotterdam.
  • Getting to know the student life
  • Getting to know your new fellow students

These elements are incorporated in the various activities throughout the week. Right now, there is some uncertainty about what the program is going to look like. However, there are general concepts for every scenario that we are working with. These concepts are explained here, and you can expect them to be present in some form in the different scenarios. 

Getting to know: Rotterdam

During these activities you will discover the city together with your guides and fellow participants in your group. You will participate in an interactive game, where you will explore everything that Rotterdam has to offer.

Getting to know: The EUR

These activities will mostly take place on campus. During the week you will get the opportunity to meet all the associations that are connected to the university. You will discover the place where your academic career is going to take place!

Getting to know: Fellow students

During the week we will ensure that there are enough possibilities to meet your fellow students. Together with a group of other students from your study, you will participate in some relaxing and  fun activities. Of course there is some music and good food involved!

Getting to know: Student life

Did you know that there are more than 100 associations tied to the EUR?! In order to meet them all, they are involved in plenty of events during the week. These activities are partly hosted by the (multi-) cultural, student, study and sports-associations. This contains some sportive and fun activities to have a great week.

Online Activities

There will be online activities held for students that are not able to come to the Eurekaweek physically. Additionally, in case of very restricting measures set by the government, there will be an online day for all participants. This online program will be a mix of the elements that are mentioned earlier.
