Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the study programme look like?

    The Science for Energy and Sustainability (SfES) is an two-year interdisciplinary track within the Master's programmes Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy. It combines ‘hard’ scientific research with the analysis of societal issues, business models and government regulations.

    Upon entry to the programme, you choose whether to pursue a Physics-oriented or Chemistry-oriented version of the track. In your first year you take all your courses. Your whole second year is dedicated to your research project and literature study. 

  • What is a joint degree?

    The University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam have joined forces in the Chemistry Master’s programme. As a student you will benefit from expertise, networks and research projects at both universities and affiliated research institutes. Upon completion of the programme you will receive a joint degree certificate.

  • Can I study this programme in part-time?

    The Chemistry Master’s programme can be done in part-time, however there is no separate part-time programme. Part-time in this case means that you do the same programme as the full-time programme, but at your own pace. For example one course per period instead of two.

    There are no evening classes and no separate courses for part-time students. You do the exact same programme as the full-time students, at the same moments, only it takes longer.
