Is there a way to quickly request a (provisional) acceptance letter in order to meet my scholarship deadline?

Leiden University is unable to issue ‘provisional’ acceptance letters.  An acceptance letter can only be issued after we have received your complete application and you have been granted admission by the faculty in question.

In general, it takes between 4 to 6 weeks from the date of submitting your complete online application until a decision on admission is issued. Therefore we advise you to bear this in mind and submit your application as early as possible. Please enter the name of the scholarship for which you are applying on the scholarship page of your online application.  The Admissions Office will then do its best to process your application in time to meet the scholarship deadline.
