Experience Day Linguistics
- Friday 24 November 2023
2311 BD Leiden
There is not a day without language: we use it to read, to write, to communicate. But do you ever wonder how you learned to speak your own language when you were a child? And how, as an adult, do you learn new languages? Linguistics has the answer to those questions. In the BA Linguistics at Leiden University you get to explore all aspects of this discipline. You will compare languages, study languages that are almost extinct and learn about language rules and structure.
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 Linguistics 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.
