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 21 until Sunday September 12 2023 23:59 for semester 1; the registration period for semester 2 is Monday October 30 until Sunday November 19 2023 23:59.

Third-year Bachelor students are also welcome to apply for the Master Honours Challenges 'Citizen Science' and 'Tackling Inequalities'.
