Welcome to the official website of the SSC

Welcome to the official website of Stichting Studiereizen Chemiestudenten (SSC). The SSC is the Dutch abbreviation for “Stichting Studiereizen Chemiestudenten”, which translates into the non-profit foundation of study tours for chemistry students. The SSC is part of the VU University of Amsterdam´s Pharmaceutical Sciences and Chemistry study organization. It is run entirely by students present in both departments. The organization is officially independent of the Pharmaceutical Science & Chemistry student association VCSVU.

The organization was founded in 1992 to organize educative, enriching and inspiring study tours for both Bachelor – and Master students of the Pharmaceutical Sciences program as well as the Chemistry program. To date, the SSC has organized a total of 14 study tours to various parts of the world. In 2015, the study trip took place in Japan.

In April 2017 the SSC Board of 2016/2017 organized a study trip to Canada, visiting Montreal and Toronto. Canada offers a large variety of research in the domains of chemistry and medicinal chemistry. The culture of Canada was an enrichment for the experiences of the students on this tour. Also, the extended knowledge in life science was a great addition to the education of the students.
