Language connects us! We are here to help you!
The Academic Language Centre (ATC) is the language centre of Leiden University. As the oldest university language centre in the Netherlands, we offer language courses in a wide range of languages, both for beginners and advanced students. All courses are carefully compiled and focus on different language skills (speaking, writing, listening and reading), with cultural aspects also covered. Our teachers specialise in language teaching meant for higher education. Quality of teaching is paramount at ATC.
