International Relations and Organisations (BSc)
Leiden University offers a variety of extra challenges next to your required curriculum.
Extra challenges within the IRO programme
In the third year of your IRO study programme, you can choose to do electives or a minor, study abroad, or do an internship. The advantage of The Hague is that you will be surrounded by (international) political organisations that may be offering internships.
The Honours College offers extra education alongside your regular studies. Together with other curious students, you are being challenged to look beyond the borders of your own studies. You will be taught in small groups in which there is much room for personal attention, and you will get in contact with students from all kinds of disciplines. There is often room to do research or an internship. You will develop many skills and grow on both a personal and an academic level.
