    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    BEGINNING MY POLITICAL SCIENCE CAREER FROM LEIDEN UNIVERSITY

    It is one of the best universities in Netherlands. It has a great campus, students come from abroad to study here and the placements are really good. Although, I applied to other universities, but the course that I wanted to pursue was granted by this university. Thus, I went ahead to fill the online application form of €100 to pursue my education.


    Course Curriculum - 

    As a student of Political Science, I get to analyse political phenomena at a local, national and global level—covering a broad range of topics and applying state of the art methods. It is highly interesting and intrigues me all the time. The course covers how the political system evolved and reformed for Netherlands and other countries and how it impacted the people of the society.
