Do you want to follow an elective outside of RSM, and let it count towards your B3 Elective space? Then you always need to ask for permission from the Examination Board before the start of the course. In this article you can read more about the conditions, the application procedure and which electives have already been approved before by the Examination Board. 


The general policy of the Examination Board regarding elective courses from another faculty or university is as follows: 

  1. The course must be part of an accredited programme at a Dutch university or a foreign research-driven university;
  2. The course must have a level equivalent to the RSM course;
  3. In terms of content, skills, attitude and testing, the course must sufficiently fit the specified exit qualifications for the programme;
  4. The course must have added value for the programme, which is why there should not be too much overlap with mandatory parts of the RSM programme concerned;
  5. The course is not used for another programme being taken by the student in question;
  6. The student must take the course and sit the examination while he or she is enrolled at RSM as a student.

For more information about the elective policy, please refer to the article Can I do an elective course at another faculty/university? 


If you want to follow an elective outside of RSM, you need to request permission from the Examination Board before the start of the course via Osiris Case in Osiris Student. 

Before you submit your request, please check whether the course you want to follow is on the list of approved elective courses at the bottom of this article. You need to indicate this in your request in Osiris Case. Only courses offered at other faculties at Erasmus University Rotterdam are included on the list. You always need to ask for permission, even if the course is on the list of approved courses! 

If the course that you want to follow is not on the list, you can still apply for permission from the Examination Board. You always need to upload an official course description (in Dutch or English) in your request in Osiris Case.

It is not necessary to request permission from the Examination Board if you want to follow a RSM elective.

You can only submit your request after you have completed all Bachelor 1 courses!

Please note: permission will only be granted if all of the conditions as specified above are met (even if the course is included on the list of approved elective courses). In order to register for the course after permission has been granted, you need to contact the School or institution that is offering the course yourself for the conditions and procedure. It may be the case that you cannot register for the course, as it may not be open to students from outside that School.
