Honours College Conference

Thursday 19 May 2022
Oude Sterrewacht
Sterrenwachtlaan 11
2311 GW Leiden

During their Honours College track, bachelor honours students work on many interesting projects during their internships, research projects, or one of the many honours classes. On 19 May, these students can showcase and share their creations, findings and experiences at the Honours College Conference. Both honours and non-honours students of Leiden University are welcome to attend the conference and engage in the ensuing discussions. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for a small drink to get to know each other better or to talk some more about the things you have seen!


  • 15.00 - 15.15 Walk-in
  • 15.15 - 15.30 Plenary introduction
  • 15.30 - 16.00 Presentation Session 1A & Session 1B
  • 16.10 - 16.40 Presentation Session 2A & Session 2B
  • 16.50 - 17.15 Project Fair
  • 17.15 - 18.00 Drinks, networking and socializing 

During the first two sessions, we will have two presentations per session and time for discussion. There are multiple, parallel sessions, so you can choose the session you want to attend. The Project Fair is like an information market where people can walk around and visit different stands and ask questions to get inspired.

Submit a project

If you are a bachelor honours student and you have done an awesome project in your HC track, or you have completed an Honours Class this year, you can sign up to present it at the Conference! To do so, read the guidelines below and sign up via the form. The deadline for submission is 24 April. If you submit a proposal, you don’t need to register separately for the conference.

Based on your submission, we will place you in a session during the Honours College Conference. Based on the number of submissions, we may ask you to adjust the format of your presentation. If this is the case, we will contact you. We look forward to receiving your submission! 

Submission guidelines

  • Present a project/assignment you have made in the course of your Honours programme. This can be something you have made in previous years or something you are working on currently. For example, a research project, your experience during an internship, a creative assignment, an interesting literature review, etc, as long as it is interesting to others 
  • You may choose how you present this. Some options include:
    • Group presentation 
    • Individual presentation 
    • Poster
    • Video 
    • An object you created (a mock-up, a flyer, a machine, a drawing)
  • Other. If you have another idea for how you’d like to present, we are open for suggestions! 
  • You can either choose to give a presentation (max. 10 minutes) during one of the sessions or present your work in a shorter format (max. 5 minutes, e.g. video, poster, etc.) during the Project Fair. 
  • The presentation as a whole should take no more than 10 min. 
  • Please make your presentation using language that is accessible to disciplines outside your own. For example, when using abbreviations, or naming theories/methods specific to your discipline, please make sure you explain and/or describe these in terms friendlier to those unfamiliar with the discipline. This is to ensure an opportunity to learn from diverse disciplines without need for prior knowledge. 
  • Max. 5 minutes (like a pitch)
  • Can be a poster (A3 or bigger), video, object, drawing, or something else that you want to show.
