Gaining research experience
Gaining research experience is an essential part of any academic study programme. There are various ways in which you can gain research experience.
You can, for example, undertake a research internship with a company or institution, or carry out research on behalf of Leiden University. Talk to your Study Adviser about the options available within your programme.
