Studying abroad

Studying abroad is a great way to broaden your horizons. It’s beneficial for both your academic and personal development. Not only will you gain new experiences, but you’ll also learn to get by in a different environment. A period of study abroad is an asset on your CV. With the increasing internationalisation of job markets, many employers regard international experience as a real advantage.

There are a number of ways in which you can study abroad. These include: 

  • Exchange
    Study at one of Leiden University's partner institutions via an exchange programme. 
  • Study abroad independently 
    For students who want to study abroad outside an exchange programme, for example at a non-partner institution.

  • Other types of activity abroad 
    Depending on your study programme, there are a range of other international activities that you can do as part of or alongside your studies. For example, internships, research, fieldwork or summer schools.
