In the two-year track Analytical Sciences of the Master's programme Chemistry, a joint degree programme with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you will focus purely on aspects of analytical chemistry, such as modern analytical techniques, general concepts and strategies for analysis and various application fields.
This year, you won't be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our Online Open Day is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home. Every study programme has an Online Open Day page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Online Open Day website you can discover all our programmes, explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
Students and lecturers from Analytical Sciences will tell you what you can expect from this track and discuss career opportunities once you have graduated.
Due to the Corona pandemic, in exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master's programme before having fully completed your Bachelor's degree. Check the Application and Admission page for more information.
