Experience Day English Language and Culture

Friday 24 November 2023
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

English is spoken, read and written all over the world, from the UK to the US and from South Africa to Australia. Would you like to know more about this world language and the cultures it represents, while learning to speak, write and read English at an advanced level? Leiden University‚Äôs English Language and Culture programme is unique in covering English in all its aspects from the Middle Ages to the present day.

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 English Language and Culture 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.
