International student adviser

Dutch student life is very new and often unfamiliar to international students. The international student adviser can help international students find their way in Leiden, The Hague and within the university.

The international student adviser can provide information about a wide range of subjects such as:

  • Student psychologists, counsellors, advisors and coordinators
  • Training courses and workshops
  • Complaints procedures
  • Help with housing issues (except DUWO accommodation)
  • Academic concerns
  • Financial concerns
  • Assistance in requesting a DigiD-code (required for rent and healthcare benefit)
  • Questions about health insurance
  • Requesting rent benefit
  • Finding a doctor
  • Childcare facilities
  • General questions about living in the Netherlands and everyday matters
