Extra opportunities

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

Meet the Makers

Throughout the year we organize a number of 'Meet the Maker' activities, where practitioners with a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds share their practice and the role of research within that practice. Meet the Makers is part of our Transmission in Motion platform. If you are interested in attending extra lectures and or seminar sessions on actual themes, you are most welcome to join our Transmission in Motion community. For news and updates, you can subscribe to the newsletter. For more information check out the website of Transmission in Motion.

Some of these sessions are held in a theatre affiliated with Utrecht University, which also provides space for dancers, choreographers, theatre makers, and writers to jointly discuss, explore, and occasionally demonstrate their work and practice-based research. Students can contact our student-led Studio M to inquire after possibilities.

Honouring your curiosity

Utrecht University offers several honours programmes for students looking for an extra avenue to nurture their curiosity and foster their personal development. Honours education is followed on top of your regular Master’s programme. The UU Honours College offers 4 university-wide honours programmes.
