The Honours Academy wants to be there for her students. Multiple platforms are in place to ensure a safe, productive, and engaging learning environment.
On the student website, students find information about studying at Leiden University. The student website also provides them with important information about the Honours Academy programmes, such as an overview of their content, structure and application deadlines.
The Assessor voices the interests of honours students in the board of the Honours Academy. The Assessor has a say in the formation of policies and is responsible for bringing the student's perspective under the attention of her fellow board members, the Dean and the Educational Director. Students are invited and encouraged to contact the Assessor with any questions, suggestions or ideas related to their honours education.
The Honours Academy encourages students to bring out the best in themselves. This is why student well-being is one of our top priorities. Next to the Assessor, students can always turn to university employees for help, such as psychologists, confidential counsellors and ombuds officers. Any topic can be discussed here, including complaints. More information about these employees and who to contact can be found on the student website.
The honours community consists of and is intended for all honours students, from Pre-University to the Leiden Leadership Programme. Some students become a member of honours student associations, such as PREunion or the Leiden Honours Community, while others partake in activities that are organised by the Honours Academy. In recent years, the activities have included the Honours Concert, a 'Design Thinking' workshop for students and teaching staff, and the celebratory opening of the honours year.
