Study associations

A study association is a good way to combine study-related activities with pleasure. Every faculty has one or more study association.

Many study programmes have their own study association. For more information take a look under the faculty tab, or speak to the administration of your study programme. 

Study associations are for students from a particular degree programme and focus on the academic aspects of student life. Students who are members of a Study Asociation support each other during their study period at Leiden, and organise course-related activities, such as lectures, seminars, field trips or excursions.

De L.K.V. (de Leidse Kunsthistorische Vereniging) is the study association for Art History, Arts, Media and Society and Arts and Culture students. De L.K.V. organizes multiple art-related excursions per month, travels, monthly drinks, and other activities like a gala or a movie-night. We have a great mix of activities about art, culture, and media.

De L.K.V. is bilingual which means we welcome both Dutch students as well as International students. Most activities are in English, but de L.K.V. is a great way to get a bit closer to Dutch culture as well. Next to organizing activities, de L.K.V. also offers a nice community of friendly people that welcome you with open arms!

De L.K.V is student-based, which means the association and the committees are for the students, by the students. This creates an informal and friendly atmosphere to have fun, learn and meet new people at the same time.

Want to become a member or do you have a specific question?
