About this course

In the Netherlands, Leiden is the only place where international students can follow a full academic programme in Dutch Studies. And, of course, the best place to learn about Dutch language and culture is in the Netherlands itself. The Dutch Studies programme offers unique opportunities: the chance to learn a new language, to simultaneously learn about and experience a new culture first hand, and at the same time earn a bachelor’s degree.
