In case you have questions about the content of a specific course, entry requirements, learning outcomes, language skills, exams, resits, attendance, rules and regulations or other questions related to the course, you can send an email to the lecturer of the course.

All these courses last one semester and carry a study load of 15 or 30 EC. This is based on the European Credit Transfer System.

It is emphasised that when planning their holidays students must stick to the official holiday periods. It is sometimes necessary for Leiden UAS to change dates and schedule exams or lectures on dates originally planned as lecture-free or exam-free days. Students can be assured that no changes will be made to the official holiday periods.
