Dear future Political science, IBO- or IRO student,
We are glad to hear you have applied to Leiden University! Apart from studying, you will have the opportunity to do much more during your time as a student. The SPIL (Study Association for Political Scientists in Leiden) could be one way of giving your student life the extra boost it needs. The SPIL organizes formal as well as informal activities throughout the year, such as drinks, readings, and trips. And you have the opportunity to be at the first SPIL event of the year: the First Years Weekend (EJW)!
The EJW takes place from 9-11 of August in Delft, a town near The Hague. This weekend is specifically organized for you and all your fellow future political science students. You will meet your fellow first years from the studies Political Science, Internationale Betrekkingen en Organizaties (IBO) and International Relations and Organisations (IRO). In this way, you can already get to know people from your study before the academic year has even taken off.
