Are you inquisitive and ambitious? Do you want to get more out of your studies? Honours education provides extra challenge alongside your regular study programme. Honours education at Leiden University is organised by the Honours Academy.
Personalised and challenging
Honours education consists of personalised and challenging programmes that you can follow alongside your bachelor or master studies. You’ll work with students from other academic fields and broaden your perspective by, for example, examining scientific issues from different disciplinary angles. Group sizes are small, which means there's plenty of opportunity to experiment and pursue your own interests.
