  • free throughout the entire week (24-28 August),
  • and ready to offer newcomers a enjoyable experience.

What’s in it for you?

  • Free participation in all OWL activities,
  • Experience Leiden in a completely different way,
  • Meet people from all over the world,
  • Make friendships for life,
  • Expand your social network,
  • Practise your languages,
  • Have an amazing time.
