Extra opportunities

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

Expand your network and professional skills

  • You are invited to attend and present at international conferences and workshops. Members of the staff will support you in preparing proposals for presentations.
  • You will participate in various activities of research schools in the Netherlands in which various universities collaborate. For students of this programme, the research schools NOSTER and NISIS are especially interesting.
  • There may be opportunities to work as a teaching assistant for one of the Bachelor courses. This will give you the chance to gain some teaching experience at a university.

Interdisciplinary honours programmes

You can choose from three of the university wide honours programmes below. In these interdisciplinary programmes you will work on varying social and academic issues together with students from other disciplines. By analysing issues from different angles you learn how you can navigate in current complex societies at a broad and connecting level. After completing these honours programmes you will receive an honours certificate during a festive ceremony.
