Dutch Master Students

Join OWL

The OWL Week is targetted at all new international students. This includes Exchange students, students who come to take Bachelor courses and Master students.
However Dutch master students who are new to Leiden are very welcome as well!

Starting at a new university and in a new city can be daunting. Why not start the semester with a bunch of new international friends! You will have a chance to practise your English as it is the language of the OWL Week.

During the week you will engage with students from all over the world, visit your faculty and other University facilities like the Sports Centre and your guides will surely show you all the hotspots of Leiden.

If you are interested in making new friends, learning about different cultures and just having a fun week that makes you feel right at home in Leiden, we strongly advise you to sign up. Please note that some parts of OWL are specifically designed for students that are not familiar with Dutch culture so get ready to debunk the stereotypes!
