Get (well) prepared for the Programme presentations
When you register for one (or more) programme presentations during the Online Master's Open Days you will receive an email (in addition to the confirmation email) with the link to the corresponding introduction videos prepared by these programmes. Watching the introduction will give you the foundation needed for the more in-depth programme presentations during the Online Master's Open Days. Combined, these two presentations will give you the broadest picture of your future master's programme at Leiden University.
What can you expect?
Watch live programme presentations, talkshows and join our Q&A sessions. Or choose from a wide variety of sessions with practical information on housing, visas, applications, admissions – and student life itself! Each live presentation consists of approximately 30 minutes of in-depth information and 10 minutes of Q&A. You can also ask questions at our Q&A sessions or at some of our talkshows.
Each live presentation lasts an average of 40 minutes. There is an opportunity to ask questions during the presentations.
At he online information market you will find virtual stands of each programme and virtual stands that are not directly related our study programmes. Here you'll find Leiden University Sports Centre, the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts and many other facilities. You'll also find stands with practical information on housing, visa and admission and application.
At a number of stands there is the possibility to ask questions to students, teachers and programme ambassadors through a video call. This can be done one hour before and two hours after each presentation.
Explore not just the cities of Leiden and The Hague but our faculties and classrooms too in one of our virtual tours. And our students are waiting to answer all your questions on student life and what it's like to study at Leiden University.
First-hand knowledge is just a click away. During the Online Master's Open Days you can chat with students and staff from a programme of your choice straight away!
