LLM in Int. Law Leiden Sept. 07


kris1984

I DO have an EU passport. But, getting this famous EU health card seems like a rather big pain in the ass. IPS Primary is everything on the list of coverage they have on the website; IPS secondary is everything minus category one (Medical).

I don't know how long the LLM is actually - but I figure each semester is about three months, plus Christmas, etc... so eight seems reasonable. You can change it (or so I read somewhere).

What nationality are you? I'm dual Canadian / Italian.

Fair enough... I just assumed it was around 1 year....

I'm a dual Australian/ Sri Lankan citizen... everything is more expensive and difficult for me :)

My apologies, I don't remember who is/was having problems with housing - but whomever should call +31 71 527 5330 ASAP and sort it out. They can at least verify you are in the system and maybe tell you how much longer.

I read somewhere that all Faculty of Law programmes used to be trimester, but they have now switched over to the semester system. So, this means September to May or June (problem is who knows when the exam period is...). I will probably have to get an extra month or two coverage. I thought it would be better to "top up" then beg for a refund. But on second glance, 9 or 10 months is probably safe too

As an alternative to a wire transfer I'm just sending them - Lippmann - an international cheque (which is free from my bank)... I emailed them and it seems to be ok, or you can just wait and pay from NL within 15 days or arriving.

Also I think you can choose 12 months cover as an option on the website instead of the default 8 - it worked out at 300Euro for me as an EU (dual Irish/British national) health card holder.

Is it just me or is everyone here a dual national of some sort? :)

OOO.. International cheque. That's a good idea!

Do you need to have proof of insurance to register at City Hall though (which, I think, is needed to register at Leiden...)

For the cheque, do we make it out to the info on the website?

Going by the info I've received from the IO no we don't need proof of insurance for registration at the town hall.

I'm hoping to get housing feedback tomorrow or early next week - have requested Horizon House.

As for making the cheque out, I've just made it out to the company and put the address of their bank below that - that's what my bank advised and I hope they're right, but in any event we can pay within 15 days of arrival!

Well, for me anyway, just because I can doesnt mean I think it's a good idea. No way am I going 6000km with no insurance or without my house settled-up etc...

I absolutely want everything done before I go.

I studied at a small business school near DC for a year... can't say the academic experience was up to much, but I enjoyed the us college experience. Obviously though being insured over there was a big concern of mine, compared to the uk (where i live) where healthcare is essentially free at point of treatment, the us is a scary place.

No kidding.. don't try telling that to the American's though!

In any case, you are right about the international cheque - I had called and asked them if I could pay with Visa, which would have been the best option - but they don't do it unfortunately.

I also have to get this mobile phone thing sorted. I'll probably buy a quad-band phone here and order that Dutch sim card or get a pay-as-you-go one in Leiden. The phone I have now, besides being a piece of shit, is North American dual band, so useless in Europe.

EU students (and dual citizens) need the following documents to register at the Town Hall.

Horizon House ppl can sign the rental agreement at the Visitors Centre, which is in the train station - this saves a trip to the rental office.

Note, also, that you do in fact need proof of insurance to register at the Town Hall. In turn, you need a Town Hall registration to open a Dutch bank account. So, arranging your insurance payment once in Leiden without a Dutch account might be tricky.


For EU students:

* An original certified/legalised birth certificate
* A copy of your certified/legalised birth certificate
* Two copies of the personal details page of your passport/ ID card which should be valid for at least the complete period of your study + 6 months
* A copy of your valid health and liability insurance
* An original rental agreement from your future landlord

I found it on a new section they started a few days ago (I guess - mind you, I hadn't checked in a while).
Lot's more info compared to the old International student pages.

Got my housing offer - Smaragdlaan 224

Not what I was hoping for, but really as long as its got a roof and four walls I'll be fine.
