Honours students

Registration for the Honours Classes of the first semester of 2017-2018 is possible from 21 August until 6 September 23.59hrs. Registration for the Honours Classes of the second semester of 2017-2018, including summer courses, is possible from 6 to 16 November. You can register using our online system at www.honoursacademyleiden.nl. Please note that you have to create an account for this system. It does not automatically recognise your ULCN-account.

Honours students need to follow at least one Honours Class during their track, as this is a compulsory component of the Honours College. This means they will not receive a separate certificate for the Honours Class.

Please note: Since there is a maximum number of participants per Class, the coordinators of the Honours Classes will make a selection out of the registered students. Make sure you write a clear and convincing motivation.

It is also possible to take an Honours Class as an extracurriculair activity. Non-honours students will be rewarded with a certificate for the Honours Class worth 5 EC.

Students from other universities

Students who do not study at Leiden University can register for Honours Classes via the procedure explained under ‘regular (non-honours) students’. If you are selected for an Honours Class, please send an email to the Honours Academy so we can create a uSis guest account for you. USis is the administration system that is used by Leiden University and it is the platform where your grade will be added after successful completion of the Honours Class. You can then use the transcript created in uSis to show your home university that you have completed the 5 EC for the course. Should you take an Honours Class instead of a regular course or as an elective, you should always ask the Board of Examiners of your home university permission to do so.
