If you choose the Honours Programme within your bachelor Psychology or your bachelor Pedagogische wetenschappen, then you follow 12-18 ECTS (2 to 3 courses) in departmental courses and 12-18 ECTS in interdepartmental courses. More information about the Interdepartmental courses. For a list of departmental courses, see below.
All departmental courses are 6 EC-courses. A few courses offer the possibility for Honours students to gain 3 EC extra star credits after successfully completing an extra assignment for that course besides passing the regular assessment of that particular course. In case you choose to do an extra assignment, this can be a literature review, a research proposal, or another type of assignment as will be communicated to you by the course coordinator (see applicable courses marked in bold in the Table below).
All Honours courses you pass, appear as extracurricular courses on your bachelor diploma. Upon successfully completing the entire programme, you receive a special certificate stating that you have participated in the VU Honours Programme, and that you have completed your bachelor degree within three years with an average of at least 7.5 for your bachelor courses and with an increased study load of 30 EC of Honours courses.
