Bachelor Honours Classes

Honours Classes are part of the extracurricular honours programme that Leiden University offers its bachelor students. An Honours Class is a course of high quality that tackles complex scientific and social issues in an interdisciplinary manner.

Honours students who partake in the Honours College are obligated to follow at least one Honours Class as an elective. This academic year we offer a choice of over 40 different courses, varying from migration to biomedical technology.

Non-honours students are also invited to register for the Honours Classes, if they are interested in following a high-level extracurricular course of 5 EC.

The registration period for the Honours Classes is Monday the 21st of August until Thursday the 7th of September for semester 1; the registration period for the second semester is Monday the 6th of November until Thursday the 16th of November.
