We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
For the seventh time in the last eight years, Radboud University has been named the best general university in the Netherlands. Next to high-quality research programmes, Radboud University offers personal teaching and the opportunity to customise your curriculum with elective courses. The university is located on a green and lively campus in the heart of Europe.
Students at our Faculty of Science are challenged to explore the boundaries of science. Taught by leading academics, the programmes on offer focus on the newest understandings and concepts as well as their impact on science and society. The programmes are research-orientated: during you internship or thesis, you'll perform you own project under the supervision of one of our top scientists.
The Faculty of Science has taken a leading position worldwide. With an intellectual climate in which top scientists bundle their expertise and work together, our research institutes excel at multidisciplinary research. We offer a number of unique research facilities which attract top scientists from around the world. Our research aims to provide another perspective on the big challenges of our time, and has been consistently recognised by the international community.
Choose from 20 specialisations in any of the 8 Master's programmes on offer at the Faculty of Science, all fully taught in English. The Master's programmes are all two-year programmes, with the exception of the one-year programme in Information Sciences. Nine of the programmes at Radboud University were voted best in the Netherlands in the Keuzegids Survey 2018, including the two Master’s programmes in Information Sciences and Physics and Astronomy.
As our specialisations are open for students from multiple disciplines, students with different backgrounds work together. In this way, they'll gain an interdisciplinary experience that comes in handy in an internship and, of course, in a future career. Apart from the individual benefits, this multidisciplinary way of working also results in a better analysis of problems and more creative ideas.
