Have a look at the website if you want to learn about course contents, and send us an email if you'd like to receive more information
LUC is a tight-knit community and students live and learn together at our campus next to the central train station in The Hague. It is a very social place with many committees and clubs to join, parties to go to and the student organisation Fortuna. There is a bar on the first floor where social events take place, in addition to the entire city of The Hague and the beach suburb of Scheveningen just minutes away for beach pavilion hang outs.
Leiden University is the oldest university in the Netherlands and a Top 100 university - in the top 5 in the Netherlands as well. Our LUC is located in The Hague - which is the most international city in the Netherlands. It is The International City of Peace and Justice, which is also a reason why we chose it as a location - it makes for a great environment for the programme and the students. It is a wonderful city with loads of pubs, restaurants, multi-cultural neighbourhoods, music and cultural festivals, minutes from the beach and right in the heart of the Ranstad, the cosmopolitan part of the Netherlands (close to Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Leiden). However, it takes very little time to reach nature or The Green Heart of the Netherlands if you like to get out of the city.
However, you can contact students who are currently studying at LUC or alumni (Chloe Fonk is an alum and can be reached at [email protected]). Facebook has a number of opportunities too.
