Leiden University chose The Hague because the city’s identity complements the University. As a city of peace, justice and security and as a metropolitan area, The Hague provides plenty of opportunity for research and teaching. It is also the political and administrative heart of the Netherlands and a home to many international organisations. The teaching and research at Campus The Hague is closely linked to the city’s profile and is grouped into four key themes:
It is an amazing experience. Subjects are extremely interesting and teachers are well prepared. It is an international environment and there is a lot of support for students
I've been studying psychology at Leiden University for four months now, I think the quality of the education is satisfying. Even though we are in a pandemic, university is doing its best to unite the students especially the first year students. I am also happy about the Rotterdam-Delft-Leiden agreement, this gives us the opportunity to do some minors at other universities...
I have really enjoyed this program because the classes are excellent and you are able to form personal relationships with your professors. It is a unique experience in a quality environment.
