Bachelor Honours Classes

Bachelor Honours Classes are part of the extracurricular honours programme that Leiden University offers its bachelor students. A Bachelor Honours Class is a course of high quality that tackles complex scientific and social issues in an interdisciplinary manner. In addition we offer Honours Classes in which you can develop your skills.

Honours students who partake in the Honours College programme are obligated to follow at least one Bachelor Honours Class as an elective.

Third-year 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 Bachelor Honours Classes is Monday August 16 until Thursday September 2 2021 23:59 for semester 1; the registration period for the second semester is Monday November 1 until Thursday November 11 2021 23:59.
