If you want to make your studies more challenging, and you are looking for that extra intellectual stimulus, you should consider an honours programme!

Descartes College

As a first-year student you can opt for the universitywide honours programme of the Descartes College. Here you will get the opportunity to view your field of study from the perspective of the whole scientific spectrum and debate with the best students and lecturers of other disciplines. 

Geosciences Honours College

In the faculty's Geosciences Honours College, you delve more deeply into the subjects in your own field of study and establish links with other geo-disciplines, while at the same time discovering and developing your own talents and ambitions.

Everyone was really enthusiastic, we had some very lively discussions, and I noticed that everyone was strongly motivated to dig deeper into the study matter.
