Leiden University Stats, Info and Facts

In 1575, The Netherlands founded its first university in Leiden. It soon became one of Europe's leading universities and it still is today, performing consistently well in international rankings such as the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities, the QS World University Ranking or the Times Higher Education World University Ranking (THE). As reflected by its motto Praesidium Libertatis (Bastion of Liberty), we have always been strongly committed to freedom of spirit, thought and expression. Over the years, this atmosphere of freedom of speech has proved an ideal environment for famous and outstanding scholars. Follow in the footsteps of Descartes, Boerhaave, Einstein!

Do you want to engage in, and contribute to the demands and challenges of today's globalised society? We invite you to experience our innovative and multidisciplinary approach to teaching. Be motivated to be curious and to constantly question the essence of nature, the human mind and the complex interactions between their elements. Develop your talents and interests through a diverse range of academic opportunities and excel through participation in honours and research programmes.

Leiden brings the world to the classroom: you can be a part of it. You will be challenged to connect with global issues in the courses they study, to take every advantage of the avenues open to you to heighten your own international understanding, to learn other languages and to explore opportunities for international experience at one of our top partner universities or institutions worldwide.

Many opportunities await you across our 7 faculties in Leiden and The Hague: Archaeology, Governance and Global Affairs, Humanities, Law, Medicine, Science and Social Sciences. You can choose from 6 English-taught bachelors, increasing to 10 by the fall of 2018. To continue your academic career, choose from a further 80 masters programmes with some 200 specialisations, all taught in English. There are also plenty of possibilities to do both disciplinary and multidisciplinary PhD research. Not interested in a full programme? Enroll at Leiden University as a non-degree student, in one of our study abroad or exchange programmes, summer schools and language courses.
