Experience Day Philosophy: Global and Comparative Perspectives

Friday 5 April 2024
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

Philosophy: Global and Comparative Perspectives is one of the very few programmes worldwide to offer philosophy perspectives from around the globe. Studying the philosophies of India, East Asia, and the Arab world alongside those of the West will give you a global context for thought. You will learn how to challenge unquestioned patterns of thought, and how to develop new perspectives on current issues.

Registration for the Experience Day is closed.

What is an Experience Day?

During a Experience Day you will attend a lecture and a tutorial. 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 Philosophy 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.
