On this page you can find out how to apply for a Master Honours Class.


Applications for the Master Honours Classes are closed for the academic year 2018-2019. You can apply each year in September.


You will need the following for your application:

  • A letter of motivation – max. 250 words
  • Transcript of grades from your bachelor’s programme*

*If you have achieved good grades during your master’s programme, include these too.

Important note: You do not need to register via uSis. The Honours Academy will do this for you once you complete the course.


Places are limited to preserve the small-scale nature of the course. Students are selected by lecturers on the basis of their motivation letter, grades and background, not on the basis of application date. You will be informed whether you have been admitted by mid-October at the latest.
