If you are thinking about enrolling in this programme at Leiden University and want to find out if it is right for you, you can take an online student experience.

Become a Student for a Day!
Are you curious what it’s like to study Urban Studies? Become a Student for a Day! During this day you will visit a lecture, get a tour through the Wijnhaven building and you will be able to ask your all questions. We advise students to visit an Open Day or read the brochure/website beforehand in order to get the most out of the experience.

Can I also join one of the working groups?
Unfortunately not. During the working groups the students discuss their assignments and give presentations. This combined with the limited space in the classrooms makes it very difficult to arrange our Students for a Day to join them. We advise students who are interested in taking work groups to visit the Experience Days.

The BA Urban Studies organises individual Student for a Day programmes throughout the year. 

Sign up & Contact
If you want to sign up for this event, contact our student ambassador, Cátia Da Silva Ribeiro at c.a.da.silva.ribeiro@hum.leidenuniv.nl. You can also contact her if you have questions about the programme.
