A major step completed

In October, sixteen nanosciences students celebrated the successful completion of their bachelor’s degrees.

In their initial years here at the University of Basel, the young graduates acquired a broad foundation in the natural sciences, in preparation to further pursue their individual interests in a master’s degree. To this end, they will write two project papers in molecular biology, chemistry or physics, before concluding the master’s program with an in-depth dissertation on a topic of particular interest to them.

For one of their projects, many students make use of the SNI’s Argovia Travel Grant, which provides funding for a university placement abroad, enabling them to benefit from new experiences.
