Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology
We are very happy to welcome you to spend a semester or year studying with us at the Institute of Cultural Anthropology/Development Sociology (CA-DS). Here you will find practical information on studying CA-DS in Leiden as an exchange student.
All exchange students coming from partner universities of the Institute of Cultural Anthropology/Development Sociology 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.
These intake appointments will take place by appointment in the 2nd week of the semester. You must bring your learning agreements and other Erasmus documents like Arrival or Attendance Forms requiring signature to these appointments. Students will receive an invitation to make an appointment in August/January depending on the semester you are studying in Leiden.
Please, do not sign up for an intake appointment if your studies at Leiden University are not on the basis of an agreement with our Institute of Cultural Anthropology/Development Sociology.
