Leiden University International Student Experience

Monday 17 February 2020
Langegracht 70
2312NV Leiden

We are pleased to invite you to the Leiden University International Student Experience event. All students and staff of Leiden University are welcome to join us.

With its International Student Experience project, the University aims to continually improve the experience of our international students. It intends to do so by enhancing their social and academic integration into our community and ensuring that they receive the right support during their journey from prospective student to alumnus.

During the event, we want to look at what has been achieved so far, but we also want to look to the future and come up with recommendations for the University. We will address the following topics in particular: housing, mental health and well-being, careers guidance, community and inclusion, and the role of the cities.

We held a similar event in 2018, when we shared best practices for the International Student Experience. For more information, see the article about the event.

We hope to see you there!
