Abstract

According to the Dutch Ministry of Education ten percent of all students in higher education have to participate in a program that promotes excellence by 2014. This as the utterance of the ambition of the government and business to be part of the top five world knowledge economies. In this explorative survey research fulltime students of the School of Social Studies of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences (N = 1918) are being questioned about their attitudes toward exceeding in education by participating in honors programs. The survey contains a combination of statements based on ‘The Excellence Model’ by Platform Bèta Techniek, Youngworks and Motivaction and the different types of honors education at the School of Social Studies of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences.
