About Chemistry - Molecular Sciences at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Expand your knowledge and skills in chemistry

Want to learn how to use inexpensive organic materials to capture CO2? Discover whether carbon can form a fifth bond? Or develop new analytical methods to detect low levels of bioactive proteins in complex biological samples?

The Chemistry Master's is a challenging programme for students with a solid Chemistry background who are eager to expand their knowledge and skills.

Chemistry is not an isolated discipline. It is a bridge between the two ends of the science spectrum: it connects biology (biomolecular chemistry) with physics, mathematics and computer sciences (physical-theoretical chemistry).

Chemistry in Amsterdam is a joint degree from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. UvA and VU jointly issue a degree certificate to graduates. As a student, you benefit from the expertise, networks and research projects at both universities and affiliated research institutes.

Entry requirements

The Chemistry programme is open to both Dutch and International Students. The Faculty's Admission Board will decide upon your admission after having evaluated your complete online application.

In order to gain admission to the Chemistry Master's programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor's degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score. A Bachelor's degree obtained at an applied university or higher vocational education (HBO in Dutch) in most cases does not grant direct access to the programme (only exceptionally high ranking students stand a chance of admission).
