What's an LUChat?

Are you wondering what it is really like to study at Leiden University College in The Hague? Trying to get a feel for how our professors talk and inspire students at LUC? Then join us for the LUChats!

The LUChats are a unique opportunity to experience LUC in a fun, out of the box way. Our lecturers bring creativity to their classes and projects, and this is a way for you to get a taste of that! You will attend both LUChats. We start promptly at 13:00 so make sure you join us for registration before that. 

The LUChats on offer

At LUC you will study global challenges and you will learn that many of these challenges can be found in your own new backyard. Even though The Netherlands is a wealthy welfare state, and the city of The Hague prosperous, people here struggle with homelessness, unemployment, religious intolerance, food insecurity, gentrification, to name but a few. In professor Caroline Archambault’s Global Citizen course/project (“Struggle in the City”), students are guided in serious game and simulation design, with the aim of promoting recognition, empathy, and outreach of local struggles. In this session she invites you to demo some selected student creations to give you a first hand experience of what it is like to be a student at LUC.

Our environment is increasingly urbanized. In this lecture, you will experience the purpose of biological diversity in an urban context under the guidance of our professor Achim Häger. Weather permitting, you and a group of fellow students will explore biodiversity in the Haagse Bos, close to our LUC campus.

Preparation: watch TED talk "How animals and plants are evolving in cities" by Menno Schilthuizen.
