Programme of B2
We are working on solutions for hybrid education that will take place online and on campus. Therefore the instructional modes, number of exams, the form of the exams and/or assignments may change. You will be informed through Brightspace in case of changes. The course information in the Course guide provides an indication of what you can expect in the course.
In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
The second year in the renewed curriculum is basically fixed. Knowledge of all fields of chemistry is extended and the relevant physical and mathematical background is deepened. Much of the content does not deviate far from the old curriculum. The courses are organized in learning lines along the themes:
- Data Analysis
- Fundamentals of Matter
- Synthetic Chemistry
- Physical Chemistry
With an addition of a 'physics 2' course and a biochemistry 2 course.
The schedule below shows the courses in each quarter with EC' s in parentheses. Some courses are given during a whole semester. Care is taken that testing, exams and midterm exams are balanced during each semester.
All second year students in Molecular Sciences take a course in Panorama Science.

- 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 (Q4) and treats topics from biology.
