News & announcements

Welcome new MSc students

A word of welcome to any students starting with our programmes per September 2020! We will welcome you with introduction events online and on campus on Monday 31 August and Tuesday 1 September. We sent emails to your ULCN email account (ending in @umail.leidenuniv.nl) on 10 July and 17 August with important information about the start of your programme. Remember to fill in the Google form linked in that email!

Exams period 4: both on campus and online

Some exams and retakes at the end of period 4 will be held on campus. The originally scheduled day of the exam or retake is maintained, but exams and retakes start at 11.15 and will take place at a different location than originally scheduled. Always refer to the Blackboard page of the course for the most up-to-date information and contact the lecturer if in doubt. Please note the attached guidelines for safe and healthy presence on campus.

Look behind the scenes at the VSNU with recent podcast

If you are interested in the way the VSNU and universities experienced the lockdown and how they are preparing for restarting,  we recommend the recent podcast from 'Betrouwbare bronnen' called 'De universiteiten willen weer voluit aan de slag' [in Dutch].
