New: online elective subjects for study credits

It is now possible to earn study credits with online courses! You can use the online courses as part of your elective credits or within an Honours track.

Virtual Exchange

Online education offers you the possibility of doing a virtual exchange: you can take elective courses not only at Leiden University, but also at other universities, including international institutions.  It's a good way to broaden your horizons without having to travel!


Online education is flexible: the material is available 24/7, so you can study whenever it suits you. It's also a good way to develop your digital and intercultural communication skills, while building a network.
