Study information

Student for a day South and Southeast Asian Studies

Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

Dozens of peoples, religions and languages exist alongside each other in India, Indonesia and their neighbouring countries. At South and Southeast Asian Studies, you will encounter a fascinating mix of traditional and modern cultures. You will study the history, culture, politics and societies of South and Southeast Asia, choose one of four languages (Hindi, Indonesian, Sanskrit or Tibetan) and learn about religions like Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam.

What is a Student for a day event?

During a Student for a Day event you will attend one or multiple first-year lectures. A current student joins you at the lectures and shows you around campus. Of course there is enough time to answer all your questions about the programme and studying in Leiden!

Who can take part?

The Student for a Day event 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 a Student for a Day event is the perfect moment to experience whether this programme suits you.
