Application & admission

Do Master Honours Classes sound right for you? If so, take a look at the admission requirements and application procedures.


In the upcoming academic year, four Master Honours Classes will be offered. For classes beginning in November, you can submit your application in September. If you would like to follow Classes in the second semester, you can apply in February. 


You can apply for first semester classes from 14 till 27 September 2020 by using this registration form.

You will need the following for your application:

  • A letter of motivation – max. 1500 characters
  • 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. For classes in the first semester, you will be informed whether you have been admitted by mid-October at the latest. For classes in the second semester, you will be informed by the end of February.
