Faculty of Science

“Our knowledge changes the world.”
Gerrit van Meer – Dean

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 5700 students and 1400 employees. The Faculty offers research expertise and opportunities across all departments, from Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, Information and Computing Sciences to Pharmaceutical Sciences.

The Faculty of Science is world wide recognized for its excellent research. Among the bright minds of our faculty are a Nobel prize winner, Spinoza winners, ERC grant winners and of course we do all our research in close collaboration with social partners and the 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 the Natural Sciences as the Life Sciences and we challenge our students to get the most out of their talents.
