The Materials Science Centre is responsible for the Top Master Programme in Nanoscience. This is a two-year international English-language Master's degree programme, open to excellent students with a Bachelor's degree in physics or chemistry. After the initial phase, the aim is to have 20 students enrolling per year, 50% of them from abroad. Students are selected on the basis of academic potential and excellent results in the Bachelor's phase, supported by a letter of application, lists of accomplishments, letters of recommendation, and an interview in Groningen. All students will receive fellowships; these may be supplemented by interest-free loans. Students who complete the programme will, under certain conditions, be offered a PhD position at MSc.
The Top Master Programme in Nanoscience has been accredited by the Netherlands-Flemish accreditation
