Honours College and Classes

Honours College

Students have various options in the Honours College. They can choose one of the seven faculty tracks to deepen or broaden their knowledge.

Faculty tracks

The seven faculties of Leiden University all offer an Honours College track. Some students choose the track at their own faculty, but others find it interesting and inspiring to choose a track in a very different field. Four of the seven faculty honours tracks are accessible to all honours students, thus enabling them to deepen or broaden their knowledge. As classes are small, students have regular contact with the lecturers and other students, which makes the teaching very personal. There is also plenty of opportunity for knowledge exchange.

More information about the faculty tracks is available at the student website.
