At Leiden University, master's and advanced bachelor's students have the opportunity to take on a societal challenge alongside their regular studies, by taking on an Impact Challenge from one of the partner organisations of the Honours Academy. These can be societal organisations, municipalities and companies.
Honours education is small-scale, personal, and multidisciplinary. Students work on their personal development by broadening and deepening their knowledge and improving their skills. The Impact Challenges combine this approach with making a real-world impact. Each Impact Challenge involves students from different disciplines, which enables them to learn about other fields of study.
