Read about application and placement procedures
External students (from research universities as well as universities of applied sciences) can apply for just one Leiden minor in the period from 2 May to 15 July 2022.
1. Contact the minor
Contact the minor that you wish to follow and ask if there are spaces on that minor for external students. To find out who the coordinator is, see the Prospectus.
2. Get a no objection statement from Leiden University
Ask the minor to fill in and sign the No objection from Leiden University statement and return it to you.
3. Get a no objection statement from your own institution
Ask your own institution to fill in and sign the No objection from your own institution statement and return it to you.
4. Register as a guest student at Leiden University
Fill in the Register as a guest student form and upload the statements from the minor coordinator and your own institution.
5. Secure Proof of Tuition Fee Payment (BBC)
The BBC (Bewijs Betaald Collegegeld) is proof that you have paid your tuition fee at the institution where you are enrolled. Ask your own institution to send a digital BBC to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will only accept a BBC that comes directly from your institution and for which the statutory tuition fee was paid. This means you cannot send it yourself.
