This magazine is an initiative of the Honours Academy of the Leiden University. At the Honours Academy, high school students (VWO), bachelor’s students and master’s students follow extra education in addition to their regular studies. The Honours education is for students who are willing and able to do more; it is interdisciplinary, personal and future-oriented. Students achieve their ambitions by choosing their own path in tracks that offer both greater depth and venture outside of their own area of expertise. The Honours Academy aims to be a ‘testing ground’ and thus to promote educational innovation throughout the entire University. Visit our website.
