International Leiden Leadership Programme

The International Leiden Leadership Programme (ILLP) is an extracurricular honours programme for talented master's students. The programme focuses on your leadership skills and provides an insight into your leadership qualities. The ILLP starts in January and is worth 5 EC. The ILLP works with assessments, training sessions, seminars and coaching.

Leiden Leadership Programme

The Leiden Leadership Programme (LLP) is an extracurricular Dutch-taught honours programme for talented master’s students. The LLP is worth 20 EC and covers the full academic year. Teaching in the LLP is done in small groups and students can work on their development as a leader. The programme focuses on assessments, skills training sessions, practical assignments and seminars.

During an internship you will work for a consecutive period at an organisation such as a ministry or international business. This is an excellent way to discover if the type of work suits you. The content of the internship is discussed with the internship coordinator of your programme. The Student Career Services of Leiden University and the faculty career coach are glad to help you find a suitable internship position. For advice on applications and a current overview of available positions in the Netherlands and abroad see: Student Career Service. On the student website and the Leiden University Job Portal you can find an overview of internships, part-time jobs and positions that we receive.

A period studying abroad is the perfect opportunity to broaden your horizon. Specialist knowledge which may not be available in Leiden, can sometimes be found at a university in another country. You learn how to manage in unfamiliar surroundings. You improve your language skills and increase your chances of finding a job. Last but not least, you learn how to think in a more international way. You can already start making plans to go abroad during your bachelor.

At a university abroad you can take courses that are not offered at Leiden. Or you can specialise in subjects which receive less attention here. The law school collaborates with many renowned universities in Europe such as Oxford, Paris, Siena, Oslo, Granada and Zurich. But we also have contacts throughout the world. For instance, you can study in China at Shanghai International Studies University.
