A tailor-made university for your individual career and educational ambitions

Overall
If Leiden University could be summarized in two concepts, I would say those are freedom of choice and diversity. On the one hand, I have been offered an incredibly wide range of educational options in Leiden. You can choose to learn a language (from Mandarin to Dutch), to follow a Minor that further helps you to specialize in an area of expertise, to study at the Honours academy and develop high-level skills, or to integrate in student life by participating as a member of their multiple associations (for example, BASIS or CIROS), and gaining in their positions lots of working experience. On the other hand, Leiden University has a vibrant international and diverse environment, very suitable for students coming from abroad, and for those hoping to broaden their horizons by learning from multiple perspectives. In short, I think Leiden University is an amazing place to feel at home in an international environment, while having the opportunity to become the graduate student or professional you want to be, with almost complete freedom.

Overall
Empecé mis estudios académicos a los 49 años. Dejé mi país de origen (Chile) por razones personales: libertad y desarrollo, crecimiento personal.  Mis estudios los realicé  a tiempo completo y trabajando 21 horas a la semana en el almacén de H&M. Fue muy duro. Días muy largos pero llenos de personales satisfacciones. Los estudios universitarios con muy importantes pues entregan herramientas útiles para toda la vida. Métodos, orden y disciplina. Desarrollan capacidades de investigación y profundizar ideas y problemas. Escritura concisa, etc.
