Three times per year Leiden University publishes alumni magazine Leidraad. Leidraad is a publication of the Development & Alumni Relations Department of Leiden University and is sent to all Dutch speaking alumni of the university, free of charge.

For whom?

Alumni magazine Leidraad is only available in Dutch. Therefore all Dutch speaking alumni of Leiden University receive Leidraad, free of charge and automatically after graduation.

Other interested parties can subscribe on request.
