Students

Looking for more?

A university degree is varied and challenging in itself, but for those students who are looking to broaden their horizons or dig deeper we also offer honours programmes that provide an additional challenge. Would you like to get more out of your studies and develop your talents as much as you can? Then an honours programme could be what you are looking for.

  • Get a more in-depth perspective of the subjects in your degree programme;
  • Dare to look beyond the bounds of your own degree programme;
  • Carefully consider and work on your talents and ambitions.

Honours certificate

If you successfully complete an honours programme you receive an honours certificate. This improves your chances of being admitted to selective Master’s programmes and enhances your opportunities on the labour market.

Selection

If you want to be admitted to the honours programme you must take part in a selection procedure. We look at your motivation and the marks you got in your final examinations at secondary school and whether you have a demonstrable interest in organising and attending extra study and/or other activities.
