Study information

Student for a day Philosophy: Global and Comparative Perspectives (full)

Friday 12 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.

What is a Student for a day event?

This student-for-a-day event is full. You are welcome to join our Experience Day on Friday, April 5th. More information and the registration form can be found on this page. An overview of all available events for this program can be found here.

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.
