Schedules Academic Year

The LUC academic year is divided into a spring and an autumn semester, with each semester consisting of two eight-week blocks. Most courses at LUC run for one of these eight-week blocks, with the notable exceptions of language courses and two compulsory first-year courses which run for two consecutive blocks. During the first seven weeks of a block, each course has scheduled contact hours, usually two sessions per week of two hours each. There are no contact hours in the final week of the block (known as ‘reading week’) as this week is dedicated to final essays, papers, or (take-home) exams. Students are required to be on campus during the entire eight-week block.

The two semesters are divided by the winter (six weeks) and summer breaks (twelve weeks), in which there are no classes. In winter break however the Remedial Math course is taught.

Please note that the LUC academic year differs slightly from the annual calendar of Leiden University.


Classes at LUC are an hour and fifty minutes long including a ten-minute break after the first fifty minutes. The timeslots in which a seminar or a plenary session may be scheduled are: 09:00-10:50; 11:00-12:50; 13:00-14:50; 15:00-16:50; 17:00-18:50. Please note that timeslots T11 and T12 are in principle reserved for fieldwork and lab hours.

Students receive their timetable from the Registrar (Mr. Joppe Brieffes) by e-mail at the beginning of the block. Please note that there are no regularly scheduled classes on Wednesday afternoons, as this time is dedicated to other educational activities, such as visiting speaker events, workshops, and excursions.

If a student chooses to take a course at Leiden University, classes within this course will take place in Leiden in accordance with the ‘Leids kwartiertje’ schedule. In this schedule classes are one hour and thirty minutes long and start at fifteen minutes past the hour with a fifteen-minute break after the first forty-five minutes.
