Humanities Master’s Open Day Buddy Programme: get yourself a buddy!
Are you an international student visiting the Humanities Faculty during the Master’s Open Day? Then you can now register for a buddy to guide you through the day.

Having a buddy is a nice way to start the Master’s Open Day. Your buddy can pick you up at the train station, guide you from building to building and make sure you arrive at your presentations in time. Apart from that, our buddies are Master’s students themselves so you can ask them all about what it’s like to study humanities in Leiden.

To register for a buddy, please contact:
