The Master's Online Open Days took place on 10-11 November 2022. If you missed them, you can still watch back the recordings of all the presentations that were given. The videos can be found on the Master Talks page.
The Online Master's Experience Days will allow you to meet staff and students, follow virtual example lectures, and ask all the questions you might have about studying in Leiden for your Master's programme.
During the On-Campus Master's Experience Day, you can visit the campus in person to get a feel for the city, the university atmosphere, and student life. Sit in on try-out lectures to get a taste for the in-class setting, and talk to staff, students, and more. There is also an information market where you can meet current students and alumni and ask them about their experiences with the programme.

On the Master Talks: programme videos platform you can find videos for each master’s programme. This includes a video which gives a short introduction to the programme and after the Master's Online Open Days you will also be able to watch a recording of the programme presentation on the platform.
