New: online elective courses

10 December 2018

Learn how to program at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, or get to know more about the psychology of criminal justice at the University of Queensland! From now on you can earn credits for online education!

Virtual Exchange

Online education offers you the opportunity to go on a virtual exchange: you can participate in courses at Leiden University, as well as at partner universities across the world. This allows you to expand your horizon without the need to travel! You can take online courses as part of an honours track, or for elective or extra-curricular credits.


Online education is flexible: a lot of material is available 24/7, and you can follow the course remotely. You can also develop digital and intercultural communication skills, and you get the chance to build your own (international) network.

Range of courses

Currently you can choose from about 20 courses at universities all over the world. New ones will be added throughout the course of the year!

Please note: application requirements and deadlines may vary per university and per course.
