Credit and non-credit components

If you take part the honours programme, you will earn additional ECTS credits. However, a part of the programme is extra-curricular, meaning that you will not earn any extra ECTS credits for this part:

  • KE @ Work: 36 additional ECTS credits and 33 extra-curricular ECTS credit hours
  • Research track: 21 ECTS credits and 30 extra-curricular ECTS credit hours

Can I apply?

In October of each year, we organise an information meeting in which all first-year undergraduate students are informed about the KE @ Work track and the Research track. During the third block of the first year, students who have passed every block the first time and have a GPA of 7.5 are asked if they want to participate in the honours programme. If you are approached and would like to participate, you can submit an application letter and CV. This will be followed by an interview.
