Program description:

The goal of this program is to give an advanced level knowledge in the major fields of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. The program involves obligatory lectures and laboratory practices in all four fields. (Semi)elective courses offer the opportunity of tuning the program content according to interest.

This program is recommended to applicants who are willing to organize their own course schedule. A good background in BSc level chemistry enables the student to focus on his/her topic of interest right from the beginning. Those who are less knowledgeable in basic chemistry must complete resuming courses.

In the frame of the program research experience can be gained in at least one main discipline of chemistry. Skill can be acquired in developing and applying ideas within a research project.

The chemistry master programme is intended to be a multicomponent training, where students with different entry skills are able to acquire a standard knowledge of all fields in chemistry at the master level, a general experience in laboratory work, an advanced knowledge at least in one of the disciplines of chemistry, and the skill to develop and apply ideas within a research project. The courses are divided into three parts. The programme contains 9-9 ECTS compulsory courses at advanced level in each discipline of chemistry. This primary-chemical part contains knowledge and skill termed as an expected minimum for a master degree. The second part of the master programme consists of a great number of specialized chemical courses extended with a 30 credit master thesis. The third part of the master programme contains optional courses in other sciences. The training is controlled via output requirements. For example, the theoretical knowledge of the students is tested in comprehensive examinations. Academic specializations can be obtained, if the number of the specialized courses sums up to 26 credits in different grouping of the courses. Students with missing background in a particular field of chemistry are required to choose courses from the bridging module.

Entry requirements:
The successful applicant must have a BSc degree in Chemistry, in Chemical Engineering or in any similar degree including reasonable amount of chemistry (at least 40 ECTS chemistry) in the curriculum. Certificates required for application need not be translated, they are accepted in most of the European languages.
