Student for a day Linguistics

Thursday 11 April 2024
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

Every day you use language: to read, to write, to communicate. But how did you actually learn your own language as a child, and how do languages differ from each other? The bachelor programme Linguistics has the answers. In this study programme at Leiden University you can explore this field of study extensively. You compare languages, discover languages that have almost disappeared and learn about the rules and structure of language. The knowledge and skills acquired during this programme will help you with your future career.

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 The Hague!

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.
