The Board of Examiners is responsible for maintaining the quality of the educational programme and is an independent body that reports to the faculty board. The boards of examiners of the MSc Chemistry and MSc Life Science and Technology have joint meetings. The primary contact for all matters concerning the board of examiners is Miriam Moester at ExCie_MSc_Chem_LST@lic.leidenuniv.nl. Each board of examiners is composed of four members and a secretary. The board is assisted by Mrs M. van der Haar (secretary of the Theoretical Chemistry and Supramolecular & Biomaterials Chemistry research group).
