Can I study medicine at Leiden University?

Yes, you can. However, you do need to bear in mind some special aspects of our programme in medicine.
The medicine degree in the Netherlands is available only to a very small percentage of international students at all universities. Usually a candidate has less than 5% chance of getting into the programme.

Taught in Dutch
Please note that the full programme in medicine is taught in Dutch and all international applicants need to prove proficiency in Dutch.

Selection
The programme has a quota, so only a maximum number of students are allowed to study medicine.
