On March 30, the Welcoming Ceremony for new undergraduate Honours students took place in the Aula of the Academy Building. This marks the start of the Honours Bachelor programme 2016-2017.
Over 300 students were welcomed during this celebrative evening. After the opening speech by the Dean of the honours College, prof. mr. dr. Hanny Elzinga, guest speaker Ola Mafaalani (artistic director Noord Nederlands Toneel) talked about the choices she made as a student and in her career.
After the speeches, the students choose the name of their cohort by using the mentimeter (on their mobile phones) and voted for 'Einstein'. A group photo was taken on the stairs of the Academy Building. Afterwards, the evening ended with informal drinks where students, staff and coordinators could meet.
The Honours Bachelor’s programme is a complementary programme of 45 ECTS that is followed next to the regular Bachelor’s degree programme. The programme has a duration of two and a half year, in which deepening and broadening of knowledge and understanding are central themes. Students will look into scientific and social issues from different disciplinary angles.
