The Leiden Institute of Chemistry organises two MSc programs: MSc Life Science & Technology and MSc Chemistry and participates in three Graduate Schools

  • Netherlands Research School of Chemical Biology, NRSCB

  • Netherlands’ MAgnetic Resonance Research School NMARRS

  • Graduate Program “Sustainability: the Molecular Approach”, HRSMC

The Master’s programme consists of the following specialisations:

  • Life Science Research and Development

  • Life Science and Education

  • Life Science and Communication and Society

  • Life Science-Based Business Development
