Passing our knowledge on to the next generations

Utrecht University's Faculty of Science stands for world-class research and innovative education. The faculty is the largest science faculty of the Netherlands and is home to over 5900 students and 1400 employees. The Faculty offers research expertise and opportunities across all departments: Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Information and Computing Sciences, and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

The Faculty of Science is recognised globally for its excellent research. Among the bright minds of our faculty are a Nobel prize winner, Spinoza winners, and ERC grant winners. In our research, we seek close collaboration with social partners and industry.

We believe it is a great privilege to pass our knowledge on to the next generations. The faculty offers a wide variety of educational programmes in both Natural Sciences and Life Sciences, and we challenge our students to get the most out of their talents.
