About

The MSc programme Chemistry is solidly rooted in the chemistry research carried out in the Leiden Institute of Chemistry (LIC). Research in the LIC is centred on the two research areas Chemical Biology and Energy & Sustainability, which are leading for the courses and research training projects offered in the MSc programme Chemistry. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Students in the research area Chemical Biology will study fundamental biological and biomedical problems to understand physiological processes at the molecular level. Students in the research area Energy & Sustainability will focus on the development of new sources of sustainable energy and the use of storage of energy or the development of new catalysts. The programme offers four specialisations (research, business studies, communication and education) and gives you a great deal of freedom in composing your tailored study programme.

Career

After completing the Chemistry programme from Leiden University you will have a broad array of career prospects. All students with a Master of Science in Chemistry are admissible to a PhD programme. If you have the desire to apply your knowledge of chemistry outside the university, there are good job possibilities in Research & Development departments in industry, business, public utility companies, teaching, consultancy and government bodies. Many students eventually attain higher management positions.
