Study information

Student for a day African Studies

Tuesday 16 April 2024
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

At African Studies, you will study the African continent in all its aspects. You will explore its history, languages, literature and art, while also looking at its economic and political role in today's globalised world. Additionally, you will learn either Swahili or Berber and spend a semester in an African country.

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.

Event programme

09:15 - 11:00 - Lecture Swahili 1
11:15 - 13:00 - Tutorial Oral Performance in Africa
