Welcome new students

Welcome to the joint-degree master's programme Chemistry. To help you get started, this page provides some useful information on course registration and various other tasks as well as upcomming events at the start of the academic year.

  • Introduction day

    The (pre)master Chemistry introduction day will take place on the 2nd of September in Amsterdam! During this day you will receive study-related information about the VU and UvA, as well as the programme. It will also be an opportunity for you to meet your fellow students. Please note that you are expected to attend the introduction day.

    We are planning to organize campus tours (both VU and Science Park UvA), introduction talks at the Science Park, followed by a fun social activity organized by the study association Amsterdams Chemisch Dispuut (ACD). We would like to ask you to sign up here for the campus tours and the social activity, so we know how many people to expect. It will be appreciated that you do a corona self-test before coming to the introduction day.

    The schedule for the introduction day is as follows:
