First Years Weekend

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.

De EJW-Committee is already working hard with the preparations for the weekend, to make sure this weekend will become an unforgettable experience for all of you. During the weekend, we will do several games to get to know each other, there will be a reading, and we will go out together to show Delft how its done!

You can register via this link. Note that your application is only complete if you paid the €35,00 to the SPIL (NL61 ABNA 0429 2708 28; on name of: SPIL Leiden) with mention of ‘EJW 2018 First Name Last Name’.

Are you already excited for the weekend or do you want some more information? For all questions and concerns you can send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Hopefully we see you at the EJW!

Kind regards,

EJW Committee 2018
