Double Bachelor Plus

Are you following two Bachelor’s programmes and would you like to take part in the Honours College? Then why not join the Double Bachelor Plus programme?

Honours Class

As a Double Bachelor Plus student you will take at least one Honours Class alongside your two Bachelor’s programmes. Honours Classes are small-scale, interdisciplinary courses that address complex scientific and social issues. Of course you are welcome to follow more than one Honours Class.
