LUMC Global is fostering a model where research and education are intertwined. It has a focus on several selected centres worldwide.
The LUMC acts as a magnet for talent. We have a significant number of international students and encourage our students to gain international experience.
Several curricular courses of the bachelor programs Medicine and Biomedical Sciences are taught in English in order to attract international students and to create an international classroom for our Dutch students. In most courses we have places available for international students.
LUMC offers electives (or half minors) in English open to international students. Each elective course of 10 weeks covers a specific theme and has strong links with cutting-edge research within the LUMC.
It is also possible to do master level research internships at our research departments.
International students have a wide range of opportunities to do their studies or part of their studies at the Leiden University Medical Center.
The Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) believes in giving all her students the opportunity to go abroad. Read more about the opportunities for LUMC students to do their studies or part of their studies abroad.

The Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) offers a large variety of interesting free online courses in the field of medicine and about many other, often related topics. Feel free to join one!
