Lisa and Landy
''Although we come from different studies, we have something in common. We are students of the Master's Honours 'Leadership: making the difference!' programme. We want to share with you why you should join us if you are interested in developing your professional and leadership skills, but also broaden your horizons and working together with different lecturers and students from interdisciplinary and international backgrounds."
"The Honours College has truly been an amazing and valuable experience, which I shall never forget. I am proud to say that I have been part of a programme which aims to optimally prepare students for their role as active leaders who will bring great benefits to society."
''You are inspired by other students and teachers who are not in your field. You gained so many insights and so much knowledge and creativity. The masterclasses prepare you and lay part of the groundwork for what you would like to do in your career and future endeavours.''
"The Honours Master Programme is a lot about self-reflection."
"The Honours College makes you explore your strengths and weaknesses, and it gives you the forum to work on these aspects. From the Masterclasses and workshops, to your Masterwork, you are challenged to improve yourself."
"Je krijgt de ruimte om over problemen na te denken, wat je niet hebt binnen je eigen opleiding"
