We are very happy to welcome you to spend a semester or year studying with us at the Faculty of Archaeology. Here you will find practical information on studying Archaeology in Leiden as an exchange student.

Introduction meeting

All exchange students coming from partner universities of the Faculty of Archaeology meet with our Exchange Coordinator at the beginning of the semester to help you get settled in our faculty and to get your studies off to a good start.

You will be invited to this introduction meeting by email. During this meeting you will have the opportunity to ask questions, meet fellow Erasmus+ students studying Archaeology and have your Erasmus+ documents signed (Learning agreements, Arrival or Attendance Forms).

Useful app and websites

Our ICT services, including the Leiden University App, help to make studying easier. In the app you will find all kinds of services, which you can start using once you've received an ULCN account: 

As a student of Leiden University you will receive a uMail address, where you can log in with your ULCN account. All correspondence from the university will be sent via uMail. Make sure to check it regularly, so you stay informed. Tip: You can forward the mails to your private email address.

Leiden University offers a wide range of subjects in Archaeology for Exchange and Study Abroad students. You will find more information about the content, books, learning outcomes, schedules and prerequisites in our online course Prospectus.

We use offline and online forms of education. Our online learning environment is Brightspace. Here, instructors place additional information about their course. To get an idea on how it works, watch this video about Brightspace.

For detailed instructions on how to use Brightspace, read the instruction manual at the Support Site Brightspace.
