Bachelor Students of International Studies (BASIS) is the official study association of the BA International Studies, a Leiden University studies from the faculty of Humanities. The study association aims to unite students from all years of the course and is run entirely by students themselves on a voluntary basis. The main goals of BASIS are to increase academic knowledge related to the course, and to increase the social cohesion between the members of the association. To accomplish this, BASIS offers a variety of activities, both social and academic, ranging from discounts on the required course books to informal get-togethers and parties. 

Besides, BASIS provides the opportunity for your company or organization to directly connect with our member students as well as the rest of the International Studies students, both Dutch and international. As a partner of BASIS, you will be able to make a first impression on our students that will stick with them throughout their student life in The Hague and possibly for the rest of their lives. Consequently, you will be able to decide in what way our students will get to know your company or organization.
