The properties of matter on the nanoscale often differ completely from macroscopic properties. Nature has made good use of nanoscale phenomena. How can scientists understand and exploit the new technological possibilities it offers?
Selective Master's degree programme
Please note that this is a selective master, with scholarship opportunities. For more information about the selection procedure, please visit this page.
Talented and Motivated Students
The Top Master Programme in Nanoscience has been reviewed as excellent on all aspects (Dutch Ministry of Education) and is embedded in a world top 20 research institute. It aims to train the cutting edge scientists of the future. It offers a challenging programme for very talented and motivated students. It is strongly intertwined with research at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials: the courses are taught by top international scientists, and a large part of the programme consists of actually conducting high-level scientific research. Participants come from all over the world. A fellowship programme is available.
The Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, responsible for the Top Master Programme in Nanoscience, is a leading international research centre in this field. It belongs to the Times Higer Education top 20 of best materials research institutes in the world. It unites around 300 leading researchers.

My research proposal got funded and led to a PhD position
With a bachelor's degree in Applied Physics, I joined the NanoscienceTop Master programme in 2012. I found the interdisciplinary nature ofthis programme the most appealing, as I was interested in gatheringexpertise on areas in chemistry, physics and biology.
During the Top Master, I have attended several advanced chemistry courses, did my thesis project on single-molecule studies of DNA-based processes and did my Small Research Project on the synthesis and characterization of organic-inorganic hybrid materials...
As part of the curriculum, I wrote a research proposal based on my experience during the Small Research Project, which got funded and led to my current PhD position. I believe that the programme and the direct link to ongoing research in the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials prepared me very well for my PhD. The Top Master programme allowed me to evolve from a student with a physics background into a researcher in the field of materials chemistry. Being able to work at the border between physics and chemistry, I find myself in a position where I feel that I can make significant contributions to science. Being able to make and characterize materials, gives me the tools I need to develop my career. In addition, I think that the strength of the Nanoscience programme goes beyond the cross-disciplinary nature of the curriculum. Having a small cohort of students (maximum of 15), significantly adds to the learning process. Working with people who do not only have different scientific backgrounds (physics, chemistry or materials science), but also different cultural backgrounds, was the highlight of my Master's programme and has taught me a lot.

The lecturers treat you as colleagues rather than as students
I decided to study Nanoscience because I believe nanoscience is a very challenging and 'hot' topic; it really is the future of physics. I was attracted by the integration of chemistry and physics in the programme. The design of the modules seemed very promising. Also, I had some friends in Holland already.
The programme is very broad. It really gives you an overview of the relevant parts of chemistry and physics. On the other hand, I sometimes wish we had more time to go into even more depth. I guess that will have to wait until my PhD programme...
