Want to get more out of your studies and develop your talents as much as you can?

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. You can choose between a faculty honours programme or an interdiscplinary, cross-faculty honours programme at UU Honours College.

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.


Honours programmes have their own selection procedure. In general your motivation is the most important selection criterium.

Honours community

Students, lecturers and alumni together form an honours community within the honours education, in which they inspire and encourage each other. They are in good contact, inspire one another and use each other's knowledge and inspiration. Due to the big international intake, the honours community has a diverse character.
