Education Honours College Why the Honours College?

Honours projects (current and former)

What do you do as an Honours College student? A small selection of projects carried out by or in collaboration with students of the Honours College:

Diversity and debate have a positive impact on fighting the Covid-19 pandemic

How governments approach the Covid-19 crisis is not only interesting from the political science viewpoint; it also has wide-reaching implications for global health. Political regimes find themselves on a continuum between the democratic and the authoritarian ends. What is the significance of the variety of leadership such regimes bring during the Covid-19 crisis? dr. Nicolle Zeegers, lecturer of Political Science, asked the first-year international Honours students from the Faculty of Law to write an essay on this topic, accompanied by a videoclip as a modern touch. You can read the blogpost about the students findings here.

Noorderbrug photo exhibition

Students and Noorderbrug clients present a photo exhibition about their worlds

University of Groningen Honours students worked on the ‘Laten Zien’ (‘Show Your World’) photo exhibition as part of their Human Geography and Urban and Regional Planning programme. The project brought together students from both the UG and the Minerva Art Academy, and clients from De Noorderbrug. Together, they went on a journey of exploration into each other’s worlds.


Blog Entrepreneurship: "A blend of creative entrepreneurs"

‘Imagine you crashed on Mars with a spaceship and you only have a teddy bear, a bottle of perfume and a razor at hand to return to mother earth. What would you do?’
It is one of the many wondrous questions that the second year students were confronted with during the Entrepreneurship-evenement of the Honours College in cooperation with TalentWeb Groningen.

Leadership Lab: Falling Walls

A Leadership Lab (part of the master programme) is a project where you can observe, experience and practice a number of leadership skills. During the Leadership Lab in 2014, Honours students helped organizing 'Falling Walls'.

A hanging garden

Lisette Stevens, Menno Stellingwerff and Malenthe Teunis, three Honours College students, won this summer's Green Mind Award. This is the biennial University of Groningen award for the best idea to make the university more sustainable. The students came up with the plan in the Honours College Leadership Lab. Their idea is to make a hanging garden and a roof garden for the University Library, thus creating a green oasis in the built-up city centre.

Conducting your own research

‘Generatie Crisis ’ (Crisis Generation) explores this generation’s perceptions of the crisis

Report by Sebastiaan Scheffer for the local TV channel 'OOG TV' on the first Petrus Camper Finale of the Honours College, including pictures of poster presentations and interviews with both an honours student and the Dean. This is an excellent example of the commitment shown by Honours College students, based on the approach of combining initiative, interdisciplinary perspective and independence.
