What Can You Expect?
Overview of the association
As a part of the program, you can first look forward to an Introduction Day to meet your fellow club members. The day is full of activities, food, drinks, and socializing. During the Introduction Day, you will have an opportunity to pick your buddy (whether Dutch or International). You and your buddy can attend buddy events together arranged by Leiden United and hopefully, will find time to meet outside the association. Here you can sign up for the Introduction Day!
When signing up for Leiden United, you will be part of a group, consisting of both Dutch and international students. Together you will dine at the big 5 societies of Leiden during the semester. This means you go to Minerva, Augustinus, Quintus, SSR and Catena. These are joyful activities, where you can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and get an exclusive look inside the societies. As a Leiden United member you are not only allowed to enter the restaurant, you will also get a tour in the building and have a drink afterwards. Besides that, from this year on a couple of the societies open their doors for our members to parties. All is included in the membership fee.
We have monthly drinks on a beautiful location in the middle of the city center: Het Huis van de Passer. A lot of associations ask a mandatory presence of their members at social drinks.Our drinks are absolutely not mandatory. In this way you can easily adapt Leiden United to your own schedule. Of course we would love to see you during the activities, of which we organize a great variety: from cultural tours trough cities, to a party night in Amsterdam, or day to the famous flower fields.
Join us this semester and relish your time spent studying in Leiden!
- There are two opportunities to sign up, at the beginning of the first semester and at the beginning of the second semester. This indeed means that the program runs per semester and not per year as is more common. This is especially chosen for international students who will only attend Leiden University for one exchange semester.
- The semester fee is €50,- and can be transferred to the Leiden United bank account: NL83 RABO 0107697661. We also accept cash payments. The exact due date of the fee for this semester is February 15th 2018
