    Does anyone know whether Leiden University's "BSc International Relations and Organisations" are dominated by Dutch students or has lots of international students just like their "International Studies" course?

    It's because I am more drawn to International Relations course than International Studies but I'm afraid that if almost no international students take it, I might be left out outside of class due to my only language being English.

    I highly doubt about it. but you can also possibly mail the uni to get some info about the student population. But anyway if it's the case you are gonna get left out cause of the language. It's more your own fault, since I think if you get left out by dutchies you'll probably also get left out by other international students. Dutch people are pretty open so don't hesitate to communicate.

    Hey, thanks for this comment. I however don't get what you mean by "It's more your own fault........left out by dutchies you'll probably also get left out by other international students."

    Well I do but I'm for some reason offended by it. Hope you're not implying that I'm close-minded or anything when it comes to making international mates/students. I'm anything but that.

    What I am trying to say if you can't make dutch friends only because of a language. It will be just as hard to make friends with international students. Since people wont dislike you or avoid if u can't speak their native tongue. Unless they are ignorant. :P So in short if you are making friends in your country you should be able to make in friends in the Netherlands too.

    Hi, I am studying at Leiden's BA International Studies in The Hague, and our programme is about half international, half Dutch students, so a perfect mix! I know the other English-taught programmes are about the same, so IRO should be too.
