Description

In this internationally-oriented programme you will focus on how chemistry can find tailored solutions for complex societal problems in human health and environmental issues.

The famous Herman Boerhaave became Leiden Professor of Chemistry in 1718. Since then, many internationally acclaimed chemists have contributed to research and education at Leiden University. Today, the Leiden Institute of Chemistry is home to various research groups. The institute is surrounded by a Science Park with high-tech companies and several other science institutes. This setting facilitates interdisciplinary research in physics, biology, pharmaceutical and medical sciences. You will have the opportunity to work with internationally renowned researchers. In the specialisations - Communication, Education or Science-Based Business and Research - specific career opportunities in science-related professions can be explored. Within the specialisations students have the choice of three major research areas: Biological Chemistry, Design & Synthesis, Physical & Theoretical Chemistry.
