Honours College

Would you like to create an extra challenge for yourself in a different discipline? Or would you like to get a broader orientation in your own or a closely related discipline?

Leiden University offers an Honours Programme, aimed at highly motivated bachelor’s students who want to get more from their study and who are capable of handling extra subjects. If you opt for the Honours College, you will take an additional programme in parallel to your normal study programme. You can choose from Honours tracks in different fields, which are also taught in English: Science & Society; Tackling Global Challenges; Humanities Lab and Crossing the Borders in World Archaeology.

You can start the Honours College as early as your first year: half-way through the year you can apply for the ‘introduction course’ for your chosen Honours track. But even after your first year, it is not too late to apply. The complete Honours College programme lasts up to and including your third year. After completing the programme within three years, you will be awarded an Honours Diploma. There are a number of criteria that apply to the Honours College.

To find out the criteria for taking part in the Honours College, check out the information on the website: Honours College.
