Extra opportunities

For students looking for an extra challenge in addition to their Master's, there are several options.

Honours programmes

Honours education is followed on top of your regular Master’s programme and goes beyond the regular curriculum. Honours programmes are available both at faculty and university level. Faculty honours allow for more depth to the subject matter or time to focus on opportunities for personal and professional development within your field. University honours are interdisciplinary programmes in which you will work on various social and academic issues together with students from other disciplines.

For more information on honours programmes at the UU, go to the Honours College website or Instagram.

Student Assistants

Teaching assistentship

We are always looking for competent students to support our teaching activities. Students are employed by the university to support the teaching staff in course organisation, workshop leadership, tool development, etc. Doing a teaching assistantship is a great way to get more familiar with the staff, the course material, and an important addition to your resume.

Research assistentship

The research assistantship enables you and the associated professor(s) to explore new avenues of research, develop prototypes and models, and write research proposals together. Research assistants typically help in collecting data, doing preliminary literature studies, and building prototype tools for proofs of concepts. The research assistantship is a great way to explore a career in research.
