Programme of B1
The bachelor's programme comprises three years of 60 credits (EC). Each year is divided into four periods (quarters) of 15 EC.
First-year courses lay the foundation in knowledge and skills for the rest of the Bachelor's programme. But the first year also serves as a filter: If you are able to pass all first year courses, you will be able to handle the rest of the programme as well. If you fail to pass at least 39 EC in the first year, you cannot continue the programme (Binding Study Advice, see the link for more information).
The first-year courses for each period are listed below, with the study load shown in parentheses (EC). The first year has a fully mandatory curriculum. The Chemistry and Molecular Life Sciences programmes in the first year overlap for 85%, the Science programme deviates a bit more.
If you switch from Chemistry to Science after the first year, you need to take the courses NWI-MOL132 Vector Calculus, NWI-MOL133 Mechanics and NWI-MOL134 Electricity and Magnetism (or courses with corresponding content) elsewhere in your Bachelor's programme. Switching from Chemistry to MLS after the first year can be done without taking extra courses.
If you switch from MLS or Science to Chemistry after the first year, you need to take the courses NWI-MOL122 Chemical Analysis 2, NWI-MOL136 Physical Chemistry 2 en NWI-MOL139 Sustainable Chemistry in your Bachelor's programme Chemistry, if you did not take them in your first year.
