Study programme of pre-Master's Molecular Sciences

The bridging programme aims to bridge the gap between your prior education and our Master's in Molecular Sciences. It starts in September and consists of maximum 48 EC. The content of the programme consists of specific courses from our Bachelor's programme in Chemistry or Molecular Life Sciences and depends on the specialisation that you would like to pursue.

For students with Bachelor's degree from a University of Applied Sciences (HBO) two standard tracks are programmed that prepare for either specialisations ‘Chemistry of Life’ & ‘Medicinal Chemistry’ or specialisations ‘Molecular Chemistry’ & ‘Physical Chemistry’. We also offer a Minor programme which can be followed in your HBO programme.
