Introduction week

At the start of the academic year you will be able to join an introduction week which is a great start to your experience at Leiden University!

English language Orientation Week

In September and February Leiden University organises the English language Orientation Week Leiden which welcomes both international and Dutch students. The OWL week is a significant first step in becoming well acquainted with Leiden University, and helps you to settle in your new city.

The programme includes introductions to Leiden University, your own faculty, student facilities and the city of Leiden. There will also be various workshops (academic and non-academic) available for you to attend. Furthermore you will be able to join a variety of social activities, including dinners and parties, which will give you the chance to meet with many other students.

Leiden University organises three different introduction weeks. On our Introduction Programmes page you can check which one is best for you.
