Career Service

The career service offers support if you have questions about your career, your personal profile, the job market and job applications.

Would you like to gain work experience during your studies? Ask the career service about the options available. Each faculty has its own career service. You will find more information on your faculty tab.

You can contact your faculty career service for:

  • career advice
  • internship advice
  • choice of Master’s programme and career options
  • career tests
  • information about career orientation and job applications
  • workshops
  • CV and cover letter checks
  • information sessions

Due to the coronavirus situation in The Netherlands, Leiden University Career Services offer limited services for an unspecifiable period. All physical Career Services locations are closed. The digital portal, the Career Zone, is opened 24/7 and part of the other services will still take place online. Check out and follow the central and faculty Career Services for more specific information via the student website, the Career Zone and social media.
