Ivan Gospodinov - Student Testimonial Middle Eastern Studies Leiden University
Studying Middle Eastern Studies in Leiden lived up to the hype and high expectations that I had beforehand.
All aspects of student life
On top of all the academic benefits that the University provides, Leiden is one of the most picturesque and beautiful towns in the Netherlands. You are able to enjoy all spectrums of student life, from university organised activities, sightseeing, having fun with your fellow students and even having a cup of coffee or tea in a small café next to one of the beautiful canals whilst enjoying the view of the classic old Dutch windmill.
Editor of international affairs
I am very happy to say that my academic background as a Master's student at Leiden University was one of the main reasons I was chosen for an internship as an editor in one of the fastest growing and innovative news outlets in the Netherlands – Zapaday. The internship began during my second semester and as of this writing I am a full-time employee holding the position of “editor of international affairs” with a focus on the developments in the MENA region and I am delighted to say that the knowledge I gained is already being put to use on a daily basis.
