Honours modules

The IIS offers a range of interdisciplinary Honours modules for students who want to get more out of their study programme. These modules are open to students from the UvA, the Amsterdam University College (AUC) and VU University Amsterdam.

VU University Amsterdam and the  Amsterdam University College offer various modules alongside those offered by the IIS.


The registration for the Honours courses will start, through the registrationform which will be placed below, on the 7th of December at 10.00 and will close on the 11th of December at 23.00. Placement will be at random. Students who register after the 11th will be put on a waiting list, and will be placed if there are spots left.

The IIS will check whether your own faculty is aware that you are an Honour's student. Please ensure that the Honours coordinator/study adviser at your faculty is aware that you will be following the Honours programme, and that this person can assure us that you do indeed meet the Honours requirements for your own degree programme. Within two weeks students hear whether they were placed for a course. If there are more places available, students will be allowed to register after the deadline.

About the Honours programme

An Honours programme consists of additional courses with a workload of at least half a year (30 credits) which students pursue during their Bachelor's programme. To follow the honors program there are certain entry and output requirements. Ask your own faculty which requirements apply to you.

Honours Student Council 

The Honours Student Council is part of Extensus and focuses on the quality control of Honours courses and on the policy and cooperation of the universities. The HSC is currently active at the VU University Amsterdam (VU) and the University of Amsterdam (UvA), and they try to improve the student representation in the HP policy of both universities. For more information please visit their website.
