Six programmes in the Faculty of Humanities have been awarded the designation 'top programme' by the Keuzegids. These are the bachelor’s in German Language and Culture, Greek and Latin Language and Culture, Latin American Studies, Ancient Near East Studies, Religious Studies and Russian Studies.
German Language and Culture
The German Language and Culture programme scores highly across the board. The content and testing, the teachers and the atmosphere of the programme are all awarded the highest score.
Greek and Latin Language and Culture
Greek and Latin Language and Culture can be studied at four locations in the Netherlands, but the bachelor's programme in Leiden scores highest in the Keuzegids. Students are particularly pleased with the programme's content, testing, lecturers and atmosphere.
Latin American Studies
Latin America Studies is a unique programme in the Netherlands. Although the connection to the labour market could be improved, the programme scores well above average on the other points. Here, too, students are particularly enthusiastic about the programme's content, testing, lecturers and atmosphere.
Ancient Near Eastern Studies
Ancient Near Eastern Studies scores well above average across the board. Students value this bachelor's programme, which is unique in the Netherlands, for its content, testing, lecturers, atmosphere and links to the labour market.
Leiden's bachelor's in Religious Studies is a top programme again this year. According to students, the preparation for their further career could be even better, but in terms of content they are enthusiastic. The scores for content, assessment, lecturers and atmosphere are high.
Russian Studies is a top programme for the first time this year. The bachelor's distinguishes itself by its good lecturers and testing, according to students.
Every year, the Keuzegids assesses all study programmes at vocational colleges, universities of applied sciences and research universities. For this purpose, it uses the student opinions from the National Student Survey (NSE), labour market figures from the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) and study success rates from the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU). Programmes can be awarded a maximum of 100 points. With a score of 75 points or more, they may refer to themselves a top-rated programme
