Programme 2022

This year's digital Dies Natalis for alumni brings Leiden professors to your home. We are delighted to invite you to celebrate the 447th Dies Natalis of Leiden University online on Thursday 10 February.

For our international alumni, there will be an English lecture to attend in each of the two lecture round. Register via the online form or look below for more information.

Do you speak Dutch as well? You're welcome to join any of the four other lectures (in Dutch). You can decide during the Dies Natalis online event itself. You can also change 'lecture hall' during the lecture if you want to listen to a another speaker. Please note that the times mentioned are the local Dutch times (CET).
