Finding your way around the student website

1 July 2020

Leiden University’s student website gives you quick and easy access to all the information you need about your study programme. By selecting your programme when logging in, you can view information that is relevant to you. Via the direct links you can also gain speedy access to a range of useful websites, such as Blackboard, uSis and the e-prospectus.

Guide to using the website

1. Select your study programme
When you first enter the website, you will be asked to either select your study programme or visit the website as a guest.

  • By selecting your study programme, you can access information that is specific to your particular programme and faculty.
  • By visiting the site as a guest, you can only access general, university-wide information.  

The website will remember your selection for subsequent log-ins from the same device.
