Leiden University is one of the best universities to learn about Africa. There is no other institute in continental Europe that offers a same kind of interdisciplinary master's programme in African Studies that combine social sciences and humanities.
Students enrolled in the MA African Studies programme spend three months in Africa to follow an internship and conduct fieldwork. Upon their return, they start writing their final thesis. In early June, the students presented their findings to the thesis supervisors and each other.
During the summer period, the Student Administration is open at adjusted times.
