Middle Eastern Studies (research) (MA)
Get the most out of your studies at Leiden University by taking part in our extracurricular activities.
Throughout the year activities are organised by both the Middle Eastern Studies department and the Leiden University Centre for the Study of Islam and Society (LUCIS). This includes for example the LUCIS What’s New!? lecture series which focuses on current research on Islam and the Middle East.
Coordinator of studies
During the first weeks of their study, students are expected to meet with their coordinator of studies to discuss their programme. The coordinator of studies can help you if you have specific questions relating to the academic content of the programme, exam regulations, courses and study scheduling (and delay) of your studies.
Uhlenbeck scholarship programme
For research master’s students, the Faculty of Humanities has set up the Uhlenbeck scholarship programme. If you would like to spend a period of time abroad for field work, research or a study exchange, you can apply for a (supplementary) scholarship.
