Double Degree Studies with Leiden’s Faculty of Law
Are you interested in law and want to pursue two degrees simultaneously? You can do so at LUC. The Double Degree is designed for students who wish to do an LUC Bachelor in Liberal Arts and Sciences (Major: International Justice) combined with a Bachelor LLB Rechtsgeleerdheid at the Faculty of Law of Leiden University. As the Bachelor LLB Rechtsgeleerdheid is only available in Dutch, you need to be proficient in Dutch to qualify for the Double Degree Studies. Please note that this is a four year programme.

Bachelor Honours Education
Are you a curious and motivated bachelor’s student? The Honours Academy of Leiden University offers various kinds of extracurricular education, ranging from long-running programmes to short-term courses.
Are you interested in an extra challenge alongside your studies? Join the Honours College. You take on a 30 EC programme to broaden and deepen your knowledge and skills, at your own or another faculty. The programme is small-scale and has plenty of options. You meet students from other disciplines and learn to look beyond the borders of your own academic field.
Bachelor Honours Classes
Would you like to step outside your comfort zone? Bachelor Honours Classes (5 EC) are challenging courses that broaden the scope of your regular study, with plenty of room for personal attention. For Honours College students, taking a Bachelor Honours Class is mandatory, but non-honours students are encouraged to apply as well.
LDE Bachelor Honours Programme Sustainability
Do you want to learn more about sustainability? Join the LDE Bachelor Honours Programme Sustainability (15 EC), a one-year interdisciplinary programme accessible to second and third-year bachelor’s students. You will gain relevant knowledge, develop skills and work on current sustainability challenges. This programme is a collaboration between Leiden University, TU Delft and Erasmus University Rotterdam (LDE). Students from all three universities can participate.
Master Honours Classes & Challenges
Some project-based challenges of the Master Honours Classes & Challenges are also available for advanced bachelor's students. You will tackle a specific challenge of a partner organisation in a small interdisciplinary team.
