Degree awarded
The bachelor's programme takes three years to complete. After successful completion of the programme, the awarded degree is a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BSc).
Language of instruction
At present all bachelor's programmes are (predominantly) taught in Dutch. The only programme which you can start without knowledge of the Dutch language at the start of the programme is the BA in Dutch Studies. Studying in the Netherlands for a bachelor's degree means that many lectures, laboratory work, tests and examinations and many textbooks are in Dutch. Text books may also be written in other languages, especially in English, but depending on the programme also in other Languages. Some courses, especially after the first year may also be given in English, and in the language programmes in the language that is studied. The BA Dutch StudiesAlthough the BA in Dutch Studies is primarily taught in Dutch, the programme is designed for students with no, little or an intermediate proficiency in Dutch. It is not necessary to have any knowledge of Dutch at the start of the programme, but students should be proficient in written and spoken English. The language of instruction of the MA programme in Dutch Studies is Dutch.
Minors
From September 2009, Leiden bachelor’s students can complete the electives for their particular programme, which may vary from 30 to 15 study points depending on the department, with:
one minor
electives (local, national, international)
an internship in the Netherlands or abroad A minor is a cohesive package of subjects worth 30 study points. Leiden offers 49 different minors. Most of these are accessible to all students; a few minors at the Science Faculty have admission criteria. In terms of level, minor education is primarily suitable for third-year bachelor’s students. Students who choose to do so, can always complete their electives with a minor subject; permission of the Board of Examiners is generally not required. Students can read in the Course and Examination Regulation about what is and what is not allowed and in what permission from the Board of Examiners is required. More information in English will be made available shortly.
