About Leiden

Curious, critical and involved in the world around?

At Leiden University, the oldest university in the Netherlands, students can make a valuable contribution to tackling the various national and international challenges facing modern society. Together with academics and fellow students from all over the world, students will actively address these challenges.

Leiden keeps an open mind, so that students do not shy away from difficult discussions and allows them the space to disagree. Leiden expects the same active, open-minded and critical attitude from its students.

Leiden challenges students to look beyond their own boundaries. It welcomes anyone who wants to achieve their full potential. Its modest community size in the historical cities of Leiden and The Hague creates a highly personal and committed atmosphere.

Students will also be encouraged to conduct research in cooperation with eminent and enthusiastic scholars. The knowledge and skills students develop at Leiden will benefit them for the rest of their life, regardless of the career path they choose.

Leiden maps out a learning path that suits students and their ambitions.
