Courses and workshops

Research Honours programme

The University of Twente also offers several honours programmes for excellent Master's students. To prepare yourself for a PhD programme, you can apply yourself to the Research Honours programme. Our honours programmes have a distinctive profile, both High Tech and Human Touch. The honours programmes instil an entrepreneurial and respectful attitude towards society and the natural world.

Excellent students

These challenging honours programmes select students who are talented, enterprising and highly motivated. The honours programmes are designed to encourage personal development, but also to broaden and deepen your knowledge and perspectives. Are you ambitious? Do you want to make an impact on society? Are you willing to go the extra mile? Are you not afraid to be the best you can be, to seek your limits and even go beyond them? Are you exceptionally motivated and able to motivate and mobilize others? You are? Then it’s you we are looking for.


Do you have an affinity with research and wish to (further) develop your researcher skills? In that case, the Research Honours programme may be just what you are looking for. This individually tailored extra-curricular track can offer you additional theoretical and practical knowledge through extra courses, training and meetings. You will be guided in this process by University of Twente researchers, and researchers in your field of interest.
