Programme of B3

Dear student,

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.
You are free to make your own choices during the third year. Please note that some courses with similar content rule each other out. (e.g you cannot take Chemometrics and Chemometrics for MLS). On the priority electives page a number of examples is given.

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. As are some interesting electives from other fields.

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 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 NWI-MOL200A, generally in the fourth quarter. Information on requirements, and how to arrange an internship can be found here in the prospectus.
