X-Honours: Are you ready to explore?

What is X-Honours?

X-Honours is an extracurricular program from NHL Stenden for students who are open-minded, curious, and want to go the extra mile.

In our weekly meetings in the X-Lab on Wednesday afternoons, we offer inspirational sessions with professional guest speakers, and develop problem solving strategies in form of workshops.

More and more, the programme is being led by X-Honours students who want to share their passion and experience. The program itself is based on five pillars which are the following

The five pillars

Students work talent-oriented and are inquisitive and interested. They are reflective professionals who are aware of their strengths and weaknesses and their position in their learning process.

Students turn ideas into actions and products, can win over people and convince them of their ideas. They show initiative and are flexible and service-oriented.

Students work in multidisciplinary manner, that means that they collaborate with other students and professionals. They approach complex issues and perform research based in various specializations, while being open and inquisitive.

Students look beyond (national) personal boundaries and create links that my not be obvious. They come up with new and surprising solutions for complex issues of the personal and professional practice.

Students identify the added values to the professional field and society in their surroundings or elsewhere in the world. They have a strong moral compass that sets the course for your actions.

Our student's projects

As an X-Honours student, you can work on many different projects. They can either be from the program itself, from your studies, or you can come up with your own. 
The website you are looking at now is one of those student-initiated projects. Students and coaches with different expertises have worked together on creating content, and are constantly improving the website. This is a great example of the projects we do at X-Honours. There is no pressure to join a project, but if you are interested, you are very welcome to join all kinds of projects. The following projects are some more examples of great initiatives (see the Wall of Honours).

The X-Honours Website

Bike Buddy: Get on your bike!

At the beginning of the year, we decided to raise awareness about X-Honours, and decided to approach the idea of a website again.
The current team is really diverse, and everybody contributes with their knowledge and ideas. If you want to find out more about who is in ‘the team’ you can check out made by students, or just click the button down below.

As the title of this article suggests, the Bike Buddy project is an initiative to get more people on their bikes. For Stefan and many other people who helped, it was a great challenge to achieve. This project has been part of our X-Honours program for over a year now, and the path we’ve taken had many ups and downs, and offered great opportunities.
