Liberal Arts and Sciences: Global Challenges (BA/BSc)
LUC has unique support systems for academic support but also personal support to guide you through your time at LUC.
LUC’s academic support system pairs you with a member of the academic staff for guidance throughout your programme. You will get a first year academic adviser to help you in your transition to LUC and academic life.
You will become part of a student mentor group throughout your first year, whom you will meet in order to make sure you are on track.
After your first year, once you have chosen a major, you can contact any major-specific professor for advice regarding your major.
A study adviser is available to support you in selecting courses and helps you design your study plan. Additionally, the study advisor can support you navigating the different services and regulations Leiden University has.
Adjusting to university life and college culture can be quite a challenge. Besides the academic support, you also have access to personal and emotional support.
The Student Life Officer is in charge of all residential aspects of student life and oversees the Resident Assistant team.
There is one Resident Assistant, a senior LUC student, on each floor. They are the first point of contact for students' personal matters but are also in charge of creating a community feeling on each floor. You will quickly get to know your neighbours through the many floor dinners and events organised by the RA. Floor activities are a big part of the LUC community experience.
The Student Life Counselors provide emotional and psychological support and are available throughout the week. These services are limited and students may be referred to an external service if needed further assistance.
