During an Experience Day you can take part in the programme of your choice. You will follow a short programme presentation and take part in an active way in a lecture and/or tutorial. During this event you meet our staff and students, who are available to answer all your questions. In this way you get familiar with the programme and the way of education at our university.

You will follow (online or on campus) one or more first-year lectures and meet students who are enrolled in the programme. You will receive insight from current students on what it’s like to study in the programme and city, and get a good taste of what to expect.
Visitor of a Student for a Day
'I am a Dutch student but I became an international student for a day, because I think studying in English is important if you want to move abroad.'
'Earlier, I studied international business administration, but I quit because I felt like I am more interested in the social part of businesses. I want to know about social differences, how people think, how they behave and why they behave like that, and how that influences on companies and their performance. I would like to become a consultant. If I studied psychology, I could help people in companies to improve their work circumstances.'
Visitor of the IBP Experience Day
"The Experience Day for the International Bachelor in Psychology was great. Many of my doubts are gone, I’m more certain now about my field of study. It was very interesting to experience the lectures, the teaching style and to talk to people. Although, after a whole day I’m pretty exhausted, haha."
“I also went to the Open Dag in Leiden. I like Leiden because it is close to Amsterdam, and Leiden University has some nice research facilities. Maybe in a few years, I can join these facilities."
Visitor of the IBP Experience Day
"This Experience Day was really structured, a good overview of what the program requires. All my questions are answered, and I was able to talk to the IBP study advisors. The sample lectures discussed great examples of real-life situations, so I learned a lot!"
"I chose to go Leiden because I heard about how good the University Leiden is. There are very few International Bachelor programs in Holland, so I’m happy I found one in Leiden."
