Overview

Program description:
Graduates of the MSc programme have significant knowledge in all major fields of chemistry including inorganic, organic, physical, biological, analytical, structural, theoretical and technical chemistry. They acquire high level practical skills in chemistry during laboratory courses with special emphasis on synthetic and structural chemistry and for the application of the most common analytical techniques. Possessing broad knowledge in the use of chemical literature, they work successfully in both the chemical industry and chemical laboratories including research and development areas. MSc graduates have the appropriate skills to continue their studies in doctoral schools of chemistry at the University of Debrecen or at any university throughout the world.

Entry requirements:
Relevant Bachelor degree

Entrance exam:
Yes

Type of entrance exam:
oral

Entrance exam location:
Electronic

Entrance exam description:
The professional evaluation of the educational materials (degree, transcripts, results) is the task of the relevant Faculty. This evaluation is followed by a Skype interview with one of the professors of the Faculty, which aims to check the applicant’s level of motivation, language skills and professional knowledge. (In case of a missing certificate about the English language proficiency we conduct a Skype interview in order to check the applicant’s English language skills.)
