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 House 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 Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes, explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
Analytical chemistry plays a crucial role in many areas of science and society. Chemical compounds in a variety of materials and environments must be identified and quantified for, for example:
Analytical chemistry provides the methods and techniques that make this possible. Its impact is not restricted to chemistry alone: progress in medicine, biology, environmental and material sciences is strongly dependent on the availability of new analytical tools as well.
It is, if you:
This Master's track is unique in the Netherlands, in that it focuses purely on (all aspects of) analytical chemistry - a specialisation for which there is currently a great demand on the labour market. It covers:
The track also offers the possibility to focus specifically on environmental chemistry and analysis.
For students with a Dutch HBO background we offer a special Pre-Master's Programme (Schakelprogramma, taught in Dutch). More information on this programme can be found via the link below.
Paying the tuition fee is an important step in completing your enrolment. Other costs to keep in mind when planning your university budget include housing, living expenses, and learning materials such as books, stationary and a laptop.
Analytical Sciences is a track in the Master's programme Chemistry, a joint degree programme of the University of Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Courses are taught at locations of both universities. UvA and VU jointly issue a degree certificate to graduates. As a Chemistry student in Amsterdam you benefit from expertise, networks and research projects at both universities and affiliated research institutes.
