Online information activities
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we have had to cancel our on-campus information activities. We are still here to help you with all your questions and provide you with the information you need. To do so we have set up alternative online information activities. You’ll find them on the right-hand side of the page (desktop) or at the bottom of the page (mobile/tablet).

At the Open Day you can explore all the courses taught at the university. Get your bearings at the information fair, go to the programme presentations and experience the city where you will be studying. It is a great event to orient yourself and learn more about what Leiden University has to offer.
