The two-year track Molecular Sciences in the Chemistry Master’s programme, a joint degree programme with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, covers areas in chemistry that traditionally are associated with organic and inorganic chemistry, catalysis, physical chemistry and theoretical chemistry.
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.
Organic chemistry, biochemistry, and organometallic chemistry are the foundation for a fundamental understanding of the relationship between molecular structure and performance. This field supplies society with the molecules and materials we need for our health, transportation, energy, agriculture and communication. Understanding how molecules function is one of the most important worldwide challenges in chemistry.
It is, if you:
This track covers areas in chemistry that traditionally are associated with organic and inorganic chemistry, catalysis, physical chemistry and theoretical chemistry. The track allows you to become an expert in:
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.
The programme is embedded in various leading national and international research institutes, such as the Research Priority Area Sustainable Chemistry of the University of Amsterdam, the Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling (ACMM, part of CECAM) and the LaserLab Amsterdam (part of LaserLab Europe). These collaborations provide you with direct access to a broad pool of experts in relevant fields of study.
Molecular 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.
