Online introduction for new staff

Wednesday 3 April 2024

You may already have met your immediate colleagues and be able to find your way to your desk without getting lost in Leiden University’s historical buildings. But did you know that the university has seven faculties, around 7,300 staff members and more than 32,000 students? And have you already heard about its history and traditions? The introduction for new staff is the chance to get to know the university properly. You will find out more about the university’s long-term strategy and how the HR department can help you as a member of staff. And we have also invited a researcher to say a few words.
