Teaching methods at Leiden University

Studying at Leiden University can be quite different from what foreign students and first-years are used to. Take student ambassador Daniel, for example. He is a Romanian student  and is currently in his third year of the bachelor’s in Dutch Studies.  He explains: ‘Whereas in other countries lectures tend to only be about taking notes, here you’re encouraged to participate.’

In this video the international student ambassadors from China, Turkey, Germany and India explain the different teaching methods and show you how studying at Leiden university is different from studying in other countries.
