European Union Studies specialisation at Leiden University covers the EU's broad geographical sweep from an interdisciplinary perspective.During this Master programme you will attend lectures by academic staff, internationally renowned in their fields and you may also choose an elective taught by a practitioner, combining academic insights with practical experience in politics, government, advisory bodies, NGO's and think tanks. The programme examines the European Union with theories and concepts from different disciplines: history, economics, political science and law. You will analyse and explore the core concerns of the European Union, an increasingly complex and fascinating political and socio-economic landscape. You will also look at the developments of post-war Europe and examine the current state of affairs within the European Union. A highlight of the programme is the three-day trip to Brussels, where you will visit EU institutions, member states' representations and lobby groups. During your studies you will also benefit from the close contacts between the University and national and international government institutions in The Hague, as well as the unique wealth of area studies at Leiden University.

Lisa Schäfer
Lisa Schäfer - Student testimonial European Union Studies Leiden University

The toughest challenge for my education was to specialise. With a Bachelor's degree in International Relations, my undergraduate education was very broad and I wanted to focus on a more specific policy area. The Master's programme in European Union Studies at Leiden University offered a unique practical perspective on EU politics which is the major reason why I decided to complete this master.

An outstanding community
The programme provides its students with a good overview on EU economics, EU history and EU law after which they have the chance to specialise in their core electives...
Whether with the joint Brussels trip, meeting for a beer or helping each other out to study for exams, the strong bond among students made studying European Union Studies the most enjoyable.

Internship in Seoul
As I simultaneously studied a master in Asian Studies together with European Union Studies at Leiden, it was important for me to combine these two fields of interest in my master's research. Hence, I focused on the EU policy vis-à-vis China and specialised in the EU-China strategic partnership and the possible 2016 market economy status of China and its implications for the EU. It was a fascinating journey to find my own niche and my own interest. This helped me to pursue a placement with the EU Delegation in Seoul, where I am currently interning in the political section.

Testimonial Prof. Richard Griffiths

“I am proud that we have managed to attract many people from the 'real world' to higher education. People with valuable hands-on experience.”

“When teaching my specialist subject, the History of European Integration, I take my students back to the roots of the present day. The interdisciplinary character of the Master's in European Studies is very exciting: it is fascinating to communicate historical concepts and methods to non-historians. I also find it interesting to integrate history into societal discussions about the EU...


This programme is unique in the Netherlands. We first put together an interdisciplinary curriculum and then went looking for lecturers, rather than the other way round, as is often the case. I am also proud that we have managed to attract many people from the 'real world' to higher education, people with valuable hands-on experience. In the second semester the entire body of staff comes from outside the university. There are staff from the WRR (The Scientific Council for Government Policy), the SER (The Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands) and the House of Commons, including the Euro¬pean spokesmen from the CDA and PvdA, and a former Minister of Defence. These people are delivering complete courses. In addition, we also have an impressive list of guest lecturers. Of course, Leiden benefits from having both a physical and a personal close relation¬ship with the Hague. Close proximity to a centre of government is a great advantage for a course of this kind. The EU is occupying an increasing role in our lives. There is a growing demand in the Netherlands and elsewhere for high quality knowledge about the EU.”
