What can you expect?

Watch live programme presentations, talkshows and join our Q&A sessions. Or choose from a wide variety of sessions with practical information on housing, visas, applications, admissions – and student life itself! Each live presentation consists of approximately 30 minutes of in-depth information and 10 minutes of Q&A. You can also ask questions at our Q&A sessions or at some of our talkshows. 

Each live presentation lasts an average of 40 minutes. There is an opportunity to ask questions during the presentations.

At he online information market you will find virtual stands of each programme and virtual stands that are not directly related our study programmes. Here you'll find Leiden University Sports Centre, the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts and many other facilities. You'll also find stands with practical information on housing, visa and admission and application. 

At a number of stands there is the possibility to ask questions to students, teachers and programme ambassadors through a video call. This can be done one hour before and two hours after each presentation. 

Explore not just the cities of Leiden and The Hague but our faculties and classrooms too in one of our virtual tours. And our students are waiting to answer all your questions on student life and what it's like to study at Leiden University.

How do I access the Online Master’s Week platform?
You’ll receive a confirmation mail immediately after registration. In this mail you will see the button ‘Go to the Online Master’s Week. Click on this button to see the sessions that you have chosen and an ‘E-ticket’ button linking to the online platform. This link will only be active from 08.00 on Wednesday 3 November. You will then be automatically forwarded to the Online Master’s Week, where you can watch live presentations, visit the information market and chat to students and staff. You can’t visit the Online Master’s Week before 3 November.

Where on the platform can I see which presentations I’ve registered for?
Go to ‘My programme’ to see which presentations you’ve registered for. 

What device can I best use to visit the platform?
We advise against using a mobile phone or tablet to access the platform. For the best user experience use a PC or laptop with Google Chrome as browser. Make sure you have the latest version of Chrome and that you have a stable network connection that isn’t being used by others. 

What should I do if I can’t see the presentations on the platform?
First check that your computer has a stable connection. If you still can’t see any presentations, refresh the page or reopen the link from your confirmation mail. Otherwise contact the helpdesk via the chat on the platform.
Visitors from certain countries may find that the streaming tool that we are using for the presentations is blocked by their government. In that case, they won’t be able to see the presentations.

Can I watch a presentation that I haven’t registered for?
Yes! Go to the ‘Now live’ page on the platform: here you will see all the presentations that are currently being given. You can watch these presentations without having to register first.

Can I watch presentations later?
Don’t worry if you don’t manage to watch all the presentations you wanted to watch during the Online Master’s Week, or if you’d like to watch a presentation again. You’ll receive an email with a link to all the recorded presentations within two weeks of the Online Master’s Week. 

I haven't received a confirmation mail after registration. What should I do?
No worries! Study Line can help! Email them at studielijn@leidenuniv.nl and they will send you the confirmation mail as quickly as possible.
