The MSc+ Program is part of the 'Topsector Chemiebeurzen programma' and is intended for excellent and enthusiastic students who follow an analytical-sciences oriented 'track' within an accredited MSc program at a Dutch University.
Within the university program the student should follow a number of specified courses, viz. on Chromatography, Spectroscopy, Mass Spectrometry and Chemometrics. The student is expected to spend one academic year on projects in laboratories of COAST participants.

The MSc+ program has been instigated by industrial leaders. Employers are in great need of analytical scientists with the knowledge and experience that we provide. The MSc+ gives you intensive exposure to the best current practices and the latest technologies. Therefore the MSc+ program gives you outstanding career prospects. As a testimony of your unique knowledge and experience you will be awarded a COAST certificate upon completing the MSC+ program.
In addtion to the extra education, the MSc+ student will obtain a COAST grant (approx. 5000 €/yr). A COAST MSc+ certificate will be awarded on completion of the program.
