About

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.

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • A BSc degree in Chemistry or a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in chemistry from any Dutch or internationally recognised university.
  • Proficiency in Dutch (some specialisations in Dutch).
  • Copy of English proficiency certificate evidenced by appropriate language test. This requirement does not apply if you have completed your education in Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, New Zealand or Australia, or an International Baccalaureate.
  • The admission process may include an interview by the Admissions Committee.
  • Applicants with a higher professional education (hbo) degree in a related field of science, or with a diploma in Higher Laboratory Education (hlo) may be considered. The Admission Committee will judge the equivalence of the previous training to the Dutch Bachelor of Science in Life Science and Technology / Molecular Science and Technology which may result in additional coursework. The range of optional courses in the MSc programme may be limited by the requirement to adapt the programme to the present knowledge of the candidate.
