How can I make a novel antibiotics from functional organic compounds? Can I build an motor at the molecular level? Can I synthesize life-like artificial molecular systems? How can we make energy storage sustainable? You will encounter these questions and many more in the Master's degree programme in Chemistry at the University of Groningen.The two-year programme is taught entirely in English and is embedded in an internationally-leading research environment. The programme offers a great deal of freedom in terms of topics and has a strong focus on research, with students spending 50% of their time in research labs. The research track in the programme offers several specializations with the possibility to design your own programme:Catalysis in Chemistry, Advanced Synthesis, Synthetic and Chemical Biology, Protein Biochemistry, Supramolecular Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry, Organometallic Chemistry, Theoretical Chemistry and Modelling, and Solid State materials and Sustainable energy.› Science, Business and PolicyThis profile emphasizes the societal aspects of Science. You will gain valuable research experience and learn to implement your chemical knowledge in companies and policy organisations.The Chemistry research project takes place in a research group within or across one of these specialisations. These groups are associated with three main research institutes that focus on che

Master of Science
The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme of study. Its aim is to facilitate the recognition of study periods undertaken by mobile students through the transfer of credits. The ECTS is based on the principle that 60 credits are equivalent to the workload of full-time student during one academic year.
