Deepen your knowledge in your own field of expertise

Utrecht University students who want to deepen their knowledge of their own discipline can apply for an honours programme at their own faculty. Most studies have honours programmes for Bachelor’s students as well as Master’s students.

Below you'll find the possiblities to follow honours programmes at your own study. You can also apply for interdisciplinary, cross-faculty honours programmes at the UU Honours College

Utrecht University offers an honours programme for each Bachelor’s programme. To be eligible for the honours certificate, at least a quarter of the Bachelor’s programme must be completed at honours level, partly inside and partly outside the core of your Bachelor’s programme. You are challenged to look beyond the borders of your study area, you are offered the opportunity to acquire international experience, and you will finalize your Bachelor’s programme with an honours thesis. As an honours student you become part of an active community of students and teachers. The activities of the honours programme are small-scaled and interactive, often through individual contact with teachers. You participate in teams that go into more depth and join in excursions, projects, publications, seminars and study days.
