When deciding what to study you undoubtedly read a lot of information about your study programme. Leiden University employs various systems to provide information about programmes and courses and to facilitate communication between lecturers and students.
The Prospectus contains information about all the courses within your study programme. Here you can find all you need to know about your programme. Via the online learning environment Brightspace you can communicate with your lecturers and submit assignments.
The programme provides you with a strong comparative and connective perspective on processes that transcend cultures such as imperialism, colonisation, islamization, modernisation and globalisation.
This global, panoramic perspective is combined with practical and in depth usage of primary sources, always under the direct supervision of renowned scholars. Thanks to the international allure of the Leiden research- and scholarship programme and the unique archival collections, you will be working together with students from around the globe. With unique documentation centres and libraries on Asia and Africa within reach, as well as easy access to the National Archives and the Royal Library in The Hague, the programme is able to offer you one of the most in-depth and complete studies on colonial and global history currently available in Europe.
