Application Honours Programme

The Honours Programme is designed for motivated and talented bachelor students.

Requirements & How to Apply

  • You are eligible for the programme if you are motivated and passed all your first-year bachelor courses by the end of year one with a grade average of 7.5. 
  • You can only apply in the first year of your bachelor studies: the programme starts in your second bachelor year.
  • You will be selected by your faculty on the basis of an application form, which includes a motivation letter (in English) and a grade list. You can export an overview of your obtained grades so far via the results overview on your personal dashboard.
  • In some cases your CV and an interview is part of the selection procedure.
  • Wild Card: In case you are highly motivated but do not meet the grade criteria, you might still be admitted based on your motivation. In that case your grade average should be at least 7.3.

Application Deadline

The deadline for application is 1 May. Selection of candidates will take place in May, based on your obtained results at that time. You will know whether you have been admitted (conditionally) before 6 June.

Provisional Entry: Try out an Honours Course in Year 1

  • What is provisional entry into the Honours Programme?

    As a first year bachelor student, you can apply for provisional entry into the Honours Programme. This means you can try out an honours course during the 2nd semester of your first bachelor year. 

    This has two advantages: 

    1. By trying out a course you can see whether the Honours Programme might be something for you;
    2. If afterwards you decide to apply for and are admitted to the Honours Programme, you will have already obtained your first 6 credits.

    Important! Provisional entry does not mean gaining automatic admission to the Honours Programme: if you want to join the Honours Programme, you still need to apply before 1 May.

  • When am I eligible for provisional entry?

    You are eligible for provisional entry if you are motivated to try out an honours course in the 2nd semester of your first bachelor year and passed all exams of the 1st and 2nd period with a grade average of 7.5. If you are likely to meet these requirements, you can submit an application for provisional entry.

    There are limited placed available to first year students.

  • How and when can I apply for provisional entry?

    You can apply for provisional entry by submitting an application form, which will be published on the current webpage. Your faculty will review your application based on this form (which includes a short motivation statement) and your grades.

    The deadline for provisional entry application 2021-2022 has passed.

    If you submitted a provisional entry application before 28 November 2021, your faculty will review your application and you will hear as soon as possible whether you are allowed to take an honours course.
