The Eurekaweek programme

During four days you will go through the programme together with 15 other students and your guide(s). All people who are in the same boat, and who are starting a new study together with you. So a good time to make friends before the first day of classes.

The week starts on Monday 21 August in Ahoy, where the opening ceremony will take place. After this you travel with your group and guide(s) to the Binnenrotte, where you have a bite to eat, and then discover the city with a city game. In the evening, a great party awaits you in Maassilo, or you can relax with an evening of laughter at a comedy club.

On Tuesday you will discover the campus, after which a cantus awaits you in Rotterdam Ahoy. Wednesday during Eurekaweek is all about brunch and sports and on Thursday you will close the week with a festival with all your fellow Eurekaweek visitors.

Discover Rotterdam

During the Eurekaweek you and your group will thoroughly explore the city, but not everything will be covered yet. It is certain that Rotterdam is a great student city. Because in addition to the beautiful university, it offers countless nice bars, restaurants, activities and shops to spend your free time well.
