Proton International

Dear reader,

Welcome to the website of Proton International! Proton International is a committee consisting of 7 students who organize an annual study trip for chemistry of Utrecht University. During this trip the participants can discover chemistry in another country, showing them possibilities to study or even work abroad. 

In the past years, we went to Canada and Sweden, Switzerland and in April 2023 we traveled with a group of 24 students to Singapore. Many companies and university research groups in Singapore opened their doors to us and enabled us to discover the chemistry and culture over there. We have met many interesting researchers and students who enthusiastically told us about their research, showed us around their laboratories and answered our eager questions about life in Singapore. 

This coming year, we hope to be able to organize an amazing trip for Proton International 2024 to the Czech Republic!

Before you leave this page, take a look around this website! We’ll keep you up to date about our preparations and show pictures of some of our previous trips, the program of the trip and sponsors. 

If there are any questions, we can always be contacted with the contact information below. 

On behalf of Proton International 2024,

Kind regards,

Marije Hilberts
