Education and Child Studies

We are very happy to welcome you to spend the spring semester or year studying with us at the Institute of Education and Child Studies. Here you will find practical information on studying Education and Child Studies in Leiden as an exchange student.

Intake appointment

All exchange students coming from partner universities of the Institute of Education and Child Studies 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. 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 January. 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 Education and Child Studies.
