Start of 2020-2021 academic year: Campus is open
Since the corona outbreak, universities all over the world have switched to distance learning. A great alternative, but not ideal when you're just starting out. The Chemistry program is therefore offering on-campus classes for 1st-year students starting in September this year. You'll get 1 day on campus each week (7 to 8 hours of classes). And you'll follow about 15 hours of online classes each week. That way you'll get to know your classmates and lecturers in person as well as online. Great for the group spirit. And as soon as government measures are further relaxed, we'll increase the on-campus hours.
What do you learn?: Program
When you study chemistry at HAN you focus on analytical chemistry. Apart from that you explore subjects like organic chemistry, biology and polymer chemistry. You also work 1 whole day a week in the lab. Sometimes on your own experiments, sometimes on group experiments. And you develop your professional knowledge and skills while working on chemistry projects. Both on campus and in the field.
What can you do with a chemistry degree?: Careers
With a chemistry degree from HAN you are an independent, chemical analyst. You have the intercultural skills to work in an international setting. Which industry you work in depends on your interests. Food, pharmaceuticals, or the environment? A future working at Shell, Nouryon, Unilever or Nutricia? Or at a renowned university or research institute?
Students as partners: Dutch way of learning
The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions and give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative and to discover things for yourself.
