Programme of B3
You are free to make your own choices during the third year.
Choose courses that you feel best reflect your interests and desired specialization. Do not forget to complete the Writing course, Philosophy and Academic Skills. Below, the specialization courses in chemistry are listed with the period in which they are taught.
We recommend that you check out other degree programmes as well, because including courses from other disciplines enables you to broaden your programme.
Make sure that you pick the chemistry courses that are relevant for your internship and future master's specialization!
Half of your elective space must be filled with priority electives. The full list with priority electives can be found here.
The first semester of the third year is designated as the minor and exchange semester. A number of faculty minors are offered during this semester, but you can also choose a minor programme from another faculty. You are not obligated to choose a minor during this semester. Instead you can follow the regular electives. You may also assemble your own minor. In this case, approval from the Examination Board is needed.
You conclude your Bachelor's programme with a research internship, generally in the fourth quarter. Information on requirements, and how to arrange an internship can be found here in the prospectus.

Writing skills, Philosophy, Academic skills
NWI-FCEM02B Writing about Science can be taken in any quarter but the second.
NWI-FFIL101 Philosophy is scheduled in the first (Q1) and second (Q2) quarter
Q1: aimed at physics topics, in Dutch
Q2: aimed at molecular topics, in English
NWI-FFIL100 Philosophy is scheduled in the fourth period and treats topics from biology.
NWI-MOL086 Academic Skills: towards the of the fourth period you evaluate your Bachelors education and write a plan for the future. After discussing this with your academic mentor, the course in Academic Skills is completed and awarded with 3 EC.
