Study information

Experience Day African Studies

Friday 24 March 2023
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

At African Studies, you will study the African continent in all its aspects. You will explore its history, languages, literature and art, while also looking at its economic and political role in today's globalised world. Additionally, you will learn either Swahili or Berber and spend a semester in an African country.

What is an Experience Day?

Registration for the Experience Day is closed.

During a Experience Day you will attend a lecture and a tutorial. A current student joins you at the lectures and shows you around campus. An important part of a real lecture day is preparing your lectures: you therefore have to do some homework. After the lectures, drinks will be served and you can ask all your questions to the lecturer and a student who studies African Studies during drinks.

Who can take part?

The Experience Day is intended for people in their last years of pre-university education (like 5/6 VWO) or students of a (Dutch) university of applied sciences. Have you visited the website, watched the programme video and visited the Bachelor's Open Day? Then an Experience Day is the perfect moment to experience whether this programme suits you.
