The Programme has a duration of two and a half year, in which deepening of your regular programme and broadening of knowledge and understanding with a broader view are central themes. On that account the interdisciplinary approach will be very important, next to intensifying the knowledge of your own degree programme. Together with other students from all faculties you will look into scientific and social issues from different disciplinary angles.

In the Petrus Camper Track personal development will be a key theme. It offers you broadening and deepening of your knowledge and development of your academic skills and mind-set.
After completing the Bachelor’s Honours Programme you will receive an Honours record on your Bachelor's diploma supplement along with a Letter of Recommendation from the Rector Magnificus of the University of Groningen and the dean of the Honours College.
