Application deadlines

  • If you need a visa or residence permit, you must apply for admission before 1 April.
  • If you do not need a visa or residence permit, you must apply for admission before 15 June.

Please note: You can only start this master’s programme in September. Starting in February is not possible.

  • Early admission
    Prospective students have the possibility to apply for an early admission procedure until 15 January 2021 (starting 1 October). You will then receive a decision on your application by 1 March at the latest. In this way you will have plenty of time to make all the necessary arrangements to start and you will ensure your place on our programme!
  • Regular admission
    The regular deadline is 1 April 2021. You will then receive a decision about your application by 15 May at the latest.

Please note that a limited number of places is available in the Law & Finance programme. There are places up to 30 students for each year therefore please make sure you apply early.

Apply early!

You will have to complete a two-part application procedure:

  • First register your application(s) in the national system Studielink.
  • A day later you will receive log-in details for Leiden University’s application system (uSis), where you can complete your application.

You must submit your application via Leiden University’s application system (uSis), before the deadlines mentioned above. So don’t delay; if you haven’t registered in Studielink and activated your uSis account in time to apply by the deadline, you’ll miss out!

Other deadlines

If you want to request accommodation via Leiden university Housing Office, apply early! Accommodation is allocated on a first-come first-served basis and there is limited availability, which means the Housing Office cannot guarantee accommodation. Submit both your application for admission and your housing request well before the deadlines. You don’t have to wait for a decision on your application before submitting your housing request. Read more about when to arrange housing.

If you want to apply for a scholarship, grant or loan, please bear in mind that different deadlines apply, and these deadlines can often be earlier. Deadlines vary per scholarship. Visit the scholarship website for more details.

If you require a student visa or residence permit for your studies in the Netherlands, familiarise yourself with the visa/residence permit application deadlines. Note that you must have been (conditionally) admitted and have met your English language admission requirements before the university can apply for your visa/residence permit.
