Course Description:

As a chemist you juggle with matter. You dissect, analyse and build. Our Chemistry Master’s programme, which provides you with an exceptional tool box for your future, is closely associated with the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). At this research institute physicists and chemists work together to explore the properties of molecules and materials. This cooperation between the most chemical of chemists and the most physical of physicists in one research institute is unique in the world. It is the secret of IMM’s success and its many scientific breakthroughs.

Specialisations within the Master's in Chemistry

The Master's programme in Chemistry offers you two tracks:

Unique equipment

Our Faculty of Science has unique facilities and equipment for investigating the properties of materials and molecules. The High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML) attracts scientists from all over the world to Nijmegen. In addition, we have the NanoLab, the NMR Lab and the Laser Lab. Our newest acquisition is a Free Electron Laser which we have been able to build thanks to funding of 23 million euros from the Dutch government. Also, this Nijmegen Centre for Advanced Spectrometry draws top international researchers to Nijmegen.

Top scientists

The funding we have received for our research reflects the achievements we have made. Our scientists participate in various EU research projects and are able to access money which can be used, for example, for PhD projects. They also do a considerable amount of contract research for international companies. Your personal tutor will be one of these top scientists and for your specialisation you will join one of our research groups, for example, organic chemistry, solid state chemistry or bio-physical chemistry.

Career prospects

Most of our graduates take up a PhD position, either in Nijmegen or elsewhere in the world. Our research institutes have many vacancies for PhD projects every year. Our graduates also find work as researchers and managers in industry, in business and in research institutes.
