Representing the Dutch Honours students in the national debate about education. In the ISO meetings (Interstedelijk Studentenoverleg), the ideas and issues of the Honours Community are voiced.

Our Story

The Dutch Honours Community (DHC) is a network and lobby organisation for and by Honours students studying at Dutch universities. The goal of the Dutch Honours Community is to serve the interests of and represent all students who participate in a Dutch Honours programme. For this, the DHC maintains the relationships between Honours students and Honours associations/foundations throughout the Netherlands. We strengthen the Honours Community by supporting and organising activities, dinners and a yearly conference. Furthermore, we represent the Honours students on a national level in the Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg (ISO).

The DHC has been founded in January 2017. It is a result of a fusion between the foundation "National Honours Community" (NHC) and the association "Dutch Honours Association" (DHA).
