To apply for an Honours College place, you have to submit these documents in digital form (the form will be available on 15 January 2024).

Further procedure:

  1. Within a short period after the submission deadline, the Admissions Board will decide whether you are invited for the next round in the procedure. This is based on the submitted application file.
  2. Students who are not selected for a follow-up will be informed as soon as possible.
  3. Students who are selected for the next round will be notified what the next step looks like, e.g. date and time for an interview (mid-March).
  4. Soon after finishing the selection procedure, we will let you know whether you have been admitted to the Honours College. In any case, we will inform you thoroughly before the official start of the Honours programme: the Welcoming Ceremony (early April).

The Admissions Board assesses students on the following criteria:

  • your motivation for seeking admission to the Honours Programme: you are ambitious and want to challenge yourself;
  • your study results;
  • your potential in terms of completing the Honours Programme within the specified period of three years;
  • you are keen to explore the boundaries of your discipline and look beyond them.
