Diving into the synthesis and functioning of molecules in a pioneering and multidisciplinary environment.
As a Chemistry student in Nijmegen, you’ll be trained to design and carry out chemical experiments that will enhance our knowledge of materials at the molecular level. Topics range from solid state molecular chemistry to spectroscopy and to chemical biology, depending on the specialisation you choose. In each specialisation, you’ll also get the chance to explore your future career opportunities: there’s 24 EC of advanced course electives or an extra internship at a research department, a company or a governmental organisation. This will help you develop your unique expertise and distinguish yourself from other Chemistry students.
The Master’s in Chemistry is inseparably linked to the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). Unlike most other institutes, IMM combines the fields of chemistry, biology and physics to examine the properties of molecules. This interdisciplinary approach results in cutting-edge research: think of nanocapsules for targeted drug transport, liquid crystals for flexible displays or NMR and laser experiments showing exact 3D molecular structures. In your Master’s, you’ll take part in one of the IMM research groups, under the personal guidance of a top-level researcher.
Why study Chemistry at Radboud University?
- You’ll spend at least one year on research, and thus get an extensive experience in scientific methods.
- With a 24 EC elective programme – containing choice courses and/or an extra (external) internship – you can fit the programme to your future career.
- We have a multidisciplinary approach: you can not only specialise in chemistry, but also in biochemisty, physical chemistry, or materials science.
- Radboud University hosts multiple state-of-the-art research facilities, such as the NMR facility, FELIX laser laboratory and the Nanolab.
- On average, chemistry students find a job within three months after graduating. A majority of these jobs are PhD positions at universities in the Netherlands and abroad.
