Leiden University Students

Checklist Leien

Studying at Leiden University, still looking for an internship or elective course and curious about working with an interdisciplinary team? Then the Joint Interdisciplinary Project (JIP) might be interesting for you! Please read the checklist to see which steps need to be taken! As all the master programs in Delft take two years, it is only possible for them to join JIP in their second year of the master. As the master programs from Leiden sometimes have a different format, you can in some studies also apply for JIP as a first-year master student. Some students also opt for extending their one-year master with 3 months. Some studies may require additional permission or are not able to apply for all cases. In doubt contact your study advisor or Board of Examiners.


N.B. to do JIP during your first year of your masters, you must apply for JIP during your bachelors.
