The Honours College selects its students from the best of each faculty. The Honours programme is meant for students who enjoy a challenge, show initiative, want to excel and look beyond boundaries. In return, the Honours College provides deepening and broadening course units, personal development training, summer schools and a community for honours students to meet fellow motivated students who would like to make a difference.
The Petrus Camper Festival is the closing activity in the Petrus Camper Track, which is part of the broadening course units of the Honours College. It is the final activity Honours College students undertake before they graduate. The Petrus Camper Track teaches Honours students to approach current scientific and social problems from different perspectives and to translate this into a vision for the future. The Track consists of a deepening knowledge component, a skills component and a personal development component. Together, these components encompass academic writing, coaching, self-reflection, debating, personal leadership and more. For the Petrus Camper Festival, students have prepared all sorts of activities in which they will give you insights into their final research projects for the Honours College.
