This database provides information on around  1560 English-speaking medical and another 870 non-medical students who studied on the continent between the fifteenth and early nineteenth centuries (excluding the University of Leyden).


The details have been compiled by H. T. Swan, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. They are taken from the manuscript notes of R. W. Innes-Smith, author of English Speaking Students of Medicine at the University of Leyden (Edinburgh: Oliver & Boyd, 1932). The original manuscript material is held at the Royal College of Physicians of London.
