Are you talented, intellectually interested, and motivated? Then the Master Honours Programme is the right place for you!
The Master Honours programme is an extracurricular broadening programme of 15 EC in which talented, intellectually interested and motivated students are challenged to enrich their knowledge, skills, attitude, cooperations, and experiences outside their own discipline. Each student follows one of the multidisciplinary tracks in which they are encouraged to develop themselves in a setting comprised of passionate teachers and diverse students. Please note that the Master Honours programme is an extracurricular programme and not a study programme.
To tailor your Honours experience to your needs and to allow you to focus on specific skills you want to develop, you can choose from four tracks, each having a unique character and developmental goals.
For Ambitious and Motivated students
The Master Honours programme is worth 15 EC, meaning that the average workload is about 10-14 hours per week. This is a significant increase in workload on top of a regular Master's programme 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 programmes nominally. Students who successfully complete the Master Honours programme receive a certificate and an Honours Pin. Please note that you may only participate in one Master Honours programme during your whole master career.
Inspiring and Intense Sessions
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. Since students are shaping their own education and are responsible for their own developmental goals, all students are expected to take an active role in the programme and in the Honours Community.
