Honours College

If you enjoy going the extra mile, the (extracurricular) Honours College programme might be something for you. This programme is created for students with good academic results who want to deepen and/or broaden their knowledge.

You will be able to develop your own talents while being coached by the finest academic staff Leiden University has to offer. You will earn extra credits and after three years you will receive an honours certificate. The programme will start with an orientation module at the beginning of the second semester of your first year and lasts until the end of your bachelor studies.
