We’re here to help with questions about following a minor at Erasmus University Rotterdam. In case you have any questions that are not answered in this FAQ, please visit


Specific admission requirements are explained in the description of each minor here on eduXchange. There you will also find whether it is a selection or non-selection minor. In addition, please note that some study programmes only allow you to choose from a limited number of minors. This differs per university and per programme. How this works, and when it is best to ask permission from your examination board, is explained on the minor website of your own university. Go to minorwebsite Leiden, minorwebsite Delft or minorwebsite Erasmus.

Registration and deregistration

This year, registration for students from Delft, Leiden and Erasmus universities is via eduXchange.

Make sure you create an eduID first. You can see how to do this in this Video How to create an eduID and this Manual How to create an eduID (PDF). Make sure to create your eduID before the registration date. This can be done today and will take only 5 minutes.

Once the application is open, you can register via eduXchange in a few simple steps. You can see how to do this in this video Getting started with eduXchange, and in this Manual Getting started with eduXchange.

For a selection minor, you will find the selection criteria in the minor description. For a non-selection minor, application is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The registration period for a minor depends on the minor you would like to follow. Please take a careful look into the registration period on the right-hand side of the minor description on eduXchange. More information on the post-registration periods can be found on the minor website of your own university.

If many students want to register at the same time, you will enter a queue after clicking ‘Register’. You will see how many people are in front of you and how long you will have to wait.

When it’s your turn, you will have 10 minutes to register using your eduID. If you do not register within 10 minutes, you will lose your place in the queue. If your preferred minor is full, you can register for another one straight away. Watch the video Explore & register for your minor via eduXchange to see how it works, or check the Manual Explore & register for your minor via eduXchange.

You cannot deregister via EduXchange. Have you decided not to take a minor at EUR and want to deregister? For EUR minors, you can arrange this yourself in OSIRIS Student until 31 August.

After 31 August, you need to contact the central minor coordination , via the FAQs in ASK Erasmus. In your message, clearly indicate your EUR student number and for which minor you want to deregister. Processing may take up to 5 working days.


The timetable varies from faculty to faculty and sometimes from programme to programme. At the EUR, the timetable is announced at the end of July/beginning of August. Via you can check the exact timetable for a minor. Also note that a minor is full-time, so you cannot take any other courses alongside it. Finally, some minors continue into the 2nd semester: if this is the case, you will find this in the minor description.

Nearly all EUR minors take place in the first ten weeks of the academic year, the exact start date may vary, this is clearly mentioned in the minor description.

The timetable varies by faculty and sometimes by programme. Check the web pages of the faculty offering your minor.
