All specialisations of this Master’s programme are an excellent preparation for a career in research, either at a university, at an institute or at a company. However, many of our students also end up in business or government positions. As the Master’s in Chemistry contains a free elective programme, you’ll get the possibility to gain expertise in your specific field of interest. This is a major advantage when looking for a job, not only because you’ll have the required practical experience, but also because you’ll already know your talents and ambitions.
If you would like to have a career in science, it’s possible to apply for a PhD position at Radboud University. Of course, you can also apply at any other university anywhere in the world.
