We are very happy to welcome you to spend the fall semester, spring semester or full academic year studying with us at the Institute of Political Science Leiden or campus The Hague. Here you will find practical information as an exchange student.

Intake appointment

All exchange students coming from partner universities of the Institute of Political Science are welcome to contact our incoming-exchange administrator at the beginning of the fall or spring semester to help you get settled into our faculty and to get your studies off to a good start. If an intake appointment is not possible, you can make an online appointment with our exchange  coordinator and send in your learning agreements and other Erasmus documents like Arrival or Attendance Forms requiring a signature by email.
