Add flavour to your Master’s programme:
Double Degree honours programmes in 3 years (180 EC)
Are you interested in more than just one of our Master’s programme? Do you want to look across the boundary of your programme and combine it with another? Are you an excellent student and looking for an extra challenge? In this Honours programme you effectively take two Master’s programmes within the Graduate School of Natural Sciences at the same time. More information.
First-year Master’s students of the Utrecht University Graduate School of Natural Sciences (GS-NS) or Life Sciences (GS-LS) can enroll in the QBio honours programme while continuing their Master’s programme.
Are you curious, entrepreneurial, intellectually versatile, socially responsible? Do you want to get more out of your Master's programme, and learn to work across disciplinary boundaries to both research and actively (co-)create innovative initiatives that will make the world a slightly better place? Then the Young Innovators honoursprogramme (15 ECTS) might be of interest to you!
Graduate honours interdisciplinary seminars
Are you an ambitious Master’s student looking for an intellectual challenge? Then apply to join our Graduate Honours Interdisciplinary Seminars!
This is a series of small-scale seminars, three to four meetings each, about the focus areas of research at Utrecht University. The topics will be diverse; ranging from global health issues and transition towards sustainability, to trends in youth culture and the philosophy of science. The seminars are hosted by distinguished researchers. Through close discussions with these researchers, you will get a better understanding of what it means to carry out interdisciplinary research, what obstacles researchers face, how to create a good research set-up and how to communicate about it with researchers from other disciplines as well as laymen.
The programme takes one year (7.5 ECTS). Would you like to know more about this programme? Read more about the Graduate Honours Interdisciplinary Seminars.
Graduate program Game Research
If you want to further deepen your knowledge of Game and Media Technology, consider enrolling into the graduate program Game Research. Several master programs of different faculties are involved in the graduate program, including Game and Media Technology. The graduate program guides you to writing a research proposal for a PhD position. A number of these proposals will receive a grant, allowing you to do research for four years and obtaining a PhD at the end.
DGDARC is the Dutch Game Development and Research Club based in Utrecht. DGDARC is a part of the Sticky study association.

They organize events such as symposia, the creative game challenge student edition, and more.
Dutch Game Garden
Dutch Game Garden's mission is to create employment and economic growth by stimulating the games industry in the Netherlands. Some of the most talented game studios from the Netherlands call (or have called) Dutch Game Garden their home. Examples include Abbey Games (Reus, Renowned Explorers), Vlambeer (Luftrausers, Ridiculous Fishing, Nuclear Throne), RageSquid (Action Henk), Digital Dreams (Metrico), Self Made Miracle (Penarium) and Ronimo Games (Awesomenauts, Swords & Soldiers). Quite a few of these companies have been founded by ex-GMT students, or have ex-GMT students as employees.
The minor project (six months) can be completed at a university, research institute, or company abroad. Utrecht University and our staff have access to extensive international networks of scientific collaboration with, for example, the University of California. We encourage our students to complete their internship abroad.
