Experience Day

Security challenges rank among the most pressing issues of our times. Challenges such as terrorism, organised crime, cyber incidents, riots, natural or industrial disasters affect the lives of millions across the globe. Are you interested in studying these real-life security challenges? Are you eager to learn about their causes and impact? Would you like to devise strategic solutions to contemporary security issues? If so, the English-taught Security Studies bachelor’s programme at Leiden University might be a great fit for you. This exciting new bachelor’s programme is taught in The Hague, the ideal location to study security: The Hague is the International City of Peace, Justice and Security, and home to many international organisations working in the security domain.

Join an Experience Day to learn about the programme, the courses, the staff, and get the total experience.
