From the Dean
“We are very excited at LUC The Hague about the way that the curriculum is taking shape. It is a genuinely innovative and creative concept, with great scope for growth and development on the part of both students and staff. We’re grateful for the support we have received from all the Faculties in Leiden, and especially for the time and energy of their representatives on our Curriculum Development Committee. It is thrilling to see how much enthusiasm and creativity can be generated by a common venture of this kind, university-wide, and we can’t wait to see how this collaboration will develop in the future, to the benefit of Leiden as a whole.”
LUC The Hague: Mission
“LUC The Hague is founded on the belief that the efforts of individuals can make a difference in the world. Its creative and flexible curriculum aims to provide each student with the best possible route to fulfill their intellectual potential and to contribute towards resolving the global challenges that we all face today. At LUC we aim to recognise excellence and talent within, outside and across the boundaries of conventional disciplines, believing that students are capable of scholarly innovation and creative insight. LUC seeks to encourage its students towards these goals by creating a highly fertile, international and cosmopolitan environment for motivated students and dynamic staff working together in small groups to help build knowledge for a better world.”
Our website is now live. The visual representation of LUC takes dynamism and movement as its foundation. The matrix of coloured lines in our images, which are drawn from the Faculty colours in Leiden, shows the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary space in which LUC is located, and suggests the myriad, creative routes both to and through our innovative curriculum.
