LExS: study in Leiden with a scholarship!

September 14, 2019 1 By Ronny Jaskolski


Welcome to this exciting new phase in your life. Welcome to the Netherlands
and welcome to Leiden University. The Leiden Excellence Scholarship
is a scholarship for excellent students. The scholarship is awarded by the faculty… where the students are actually going
to do their master program. There are lots and lots of applicants… but somehow I think it was just around five procent
that managed to get one. Leiden University believes that excellence… having them in the classroom brings diversity
which also brings the education at a higher level. Right now I am a lawyer already
but I want to specialize in Air and Space Law. I’m doing African Studies here in Leiden. I’m going to study
the Middle Eastern Studies research program. I came here to enroll in the program of
advanced studies in Law and Digital Technologies. I really, really, really love Leiden. The canals are really beautiful
and the history amazes me. Yesterday I went to the beach
and it was my first contact with the North Sea. Leiden is very accessible comparing to Beijing
because everything is within walking distance. Everywhere you look there are people
willing to help you. If you apply for the Leiden Excellence Scholarship
you will have to write a motivational letter… and you can upload that together with
your application for the master program… and we’re looking forward
to welcome excellent students in the coming years. The scholarship is definitely helping me. Leiden has the best African library/N and also the best researchers. I am planning to enter the Academia. I want to develop a strong network. Making my new found passion part of my life
and seeing if that becomes my ultimate dream. I think that’s the most beautiful part
of this journey we call life.
