Student Charter

This version is a translation of the Dutch, official “Studentenstatuut”. It informs Leiden University students (who are enrolled in an regular government funded degree programme) about what they can expect from the University and what the University expects from them.

Intended audience

The student charter in English only applies to students who are enrolled in a government-funded bachelor's or master's programme at Leiden University.
The charter therefore does not apply to students following any of the Master’s in Advanced Legal Studies / LL.M (adv.) Programmes, Master in International Relations and Diplomacy and non-degree programmes. 


Additional information for international students

In the Student Charters 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 you will find a number of comment boxes with links to additional notes for international students.
(The individual words or phrases in the text that needed further explanation appear in blue). This information is of no particular use to Dutch students – e.g. the procedures on short-term housing, or procedures on visa or residence permits.
This additional information serves to clarify certain sections for international students. No rights can be derived from this extra information.
