The Bachelor Honours Programme: for ambitious and Motivated bachelor students who want to distinguish themselves.
The Bachelor Honours programme is an extracurricular broadening programme of 30 EC in which ambitious and motivated students are challenged to enrich their knowledge, skills, attitude, cooperation, and experiences outside their own study discipline. The programme starts every year in February and is aimed at the top 10% of students. In 1.5 years, 6 modules, each Honours student participates in one of our 5 multidisciplinary tracks in which they are encouraged to develop themselves in a setting comprised of passionate teachers and a diverse community of peers.
Every track has six courses of which the sessions take place on the Monday and Wednesday evenings (18:15 - 20:00). Unlike regular lectures, Honours sessions take place in small groups of diverse students guided by the best teachers and researchers the University of Twente has to offer. Next to these track-specific sessions, all Honours students get to know one another through dedicated Plenary Sessions once every module and our active Honours Community.
FOR AMBITIOUS AND MOTIVATED STUDENTS
The Bachelor Honours programme is worth 30 EC (6 courses of 5 EC), meaning that the average workload of partaking in the programme is about 10-14 hours per week. This is a significant increase in workload on top of a regular Bachelor programme that students have to take into account. However, experience shows that students who meet the admission requirements and have sufficient motivation should be able to successfully finish both their regular studies and their Honours programme nominally. Students who successfully complete the Bachelor Honours programme receive a certificate and an Honours Pin; all Honours courses are also added to your Bachelor study transcript.
