Language Course


Students studying at Leiden University as part of the MA European Politics and Society degree programme are required to take and pass a language course worth 5 ECTS.

Language courses are available at various levels of proficiency. Students are responsible for selecting the level appropriate to their current knowledge base. To assist in determining this, the Dialang test is available via the Language Centre for French, German and Spanish, see:

While no guarantee can be given that a course in the student’s first choice of language at the appropriate level will be available, we will do all we can to ensure students can study either their first or second preference.

Students wishing to continue studying their language of choice beyond the 5 ECTS are permitted to do so, subject to course availability.
