During this activity you can experience what it is like to follow a master's programme at Leiden University. You will receive a short introduction to the programme, but will mainly follow one or more sample lectures.
Sample lectures will be offered in March and April 2024 (exact information will follow later)
Student for a Day
Join us for a day to experience what it is like to be a master's student in the study programme of your choice. During the year many master's programmes offer a Student for a Day experience. View our agenda for the current offer.
You can also choose to follow a master's programme or part of your master's programme abroad. It is highly recommended, and in some cases mandatory, for a two-year master’s or research master’s programme to study abroad for a term. More information can be found under ‘Studying abroad’.
