Students Forensic Science

Sander Hansen, MSc (BSc Computer Science)

"During my Bachelor's in Computer Science, I already knew I wanted to do something more for society than working for a big corporation. In my minor, I stumbled upon a course about crime and immediately my interest was there. I did not want to do a Master's where I would let go of my Science background. Therefore, the Master's in Forensic Science was perfect, a combination between the field of crimes and science."

Floor Dussel, MSc (BSc Molecular Life Sciences)

"In the interactive classes, I learned to ask more questions. The moot court has improved my presentation skills and taught me to be more confident in front of a group. Currently, I am doing my research project at TNO, where I am looking into the use of portable NIR spectroscopy and chemo metrics for detection and identification of bulk explosive substances pre-explosion."

Meet Anna

What is it like to be a Forensic Science student at the University of Amsterdam? Anna Knes, first-year Master's student, will tell you all about this in her vlog. Follow her to class, study meetings and the gym and see her eat a delicious 'oliebol' (Dutch food).

Raúl Fernández Cereijo, MSc (Chemistry)

"When I found the Forensic Science programme, I applied with excitement and prepared for a challenge: forty students with different backgrounds studying the same topics? But once I started, I learned that our different fields of expertise were more an advantage than an issue."

Sophie Warringa , MSc (BSc Applied Mathematics)

"I was thrilled to hear I was accepted and could start in September 2019! The Master’s programme did not disappoint at all. What interests me the most is the interdisciplinary factor - the variety of courses available and how they combine to form a great field of possibilities."

Glykeria Kovaiou, MSc (BSc Physics)

"I feel that my choice was definitely worth it. This programme has offered me the opportunity to test myself, my interests and my limits, all within the certainty that this is an effort worth making. Looking at the second year, I can only be sure of the fact that many more challenges will arrive, but I feel confident that I can overcome those as well.”

Jesse Verbunt, MSc (BSc Forensic Chemistry)

"Before I started the Master’s programme in 2016, I graduated from Avans University of Applied Science in Forensic Chemistry. During my time in Breda, I did several internships related to chemistry and forensics, chasing the dream of being a forensic scientist."
