Support for students

Find out where you as a Leiden University student can turn for support if you need it. Also read about dignity and respect in the online learning environment.

Study adviser

If you need help or advice with your studies, for instance on personal problems with your studies or more practical matters, please contact the study adviser for your degree programme. Are you having difficulty studying? Or are extenuating circumstances causing you to fall behind with your studies? Tell your study adviser as soon as possible.

Israel-Gaza crisis support groups

We are running special support groups for students under the guidance of psychologist Sepideh Saadat. If you are a student at Leiden University and have been personally affected by the Israel-Gaza crisis, you are welcome to join these groups. We can set up different groups based on the preferences of the various student communities.

Dignity and respect in the (online) learning environment

The way we treat each other can affect the general mood and how safe you and others feel at university. During your studies, you will use a variety of online learning environments. Here too, you should contribute constructively in a manner appropriate to an academic learning environment. Together, students and staff can help create a safe and welcoming learning environment for everyone at Leiden University.

We have therefore shared some Do's on the Dignity and respect in the online learning environment campaign page. If you have experienced any unpleasantness in any of the online environments you use, you will find a variety of places you can go for advice or support on the page.
