The goal of this program is to give an advanced levelPh.D. 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 turning 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.

Specializations: Academic specializations can be obtained if the number of the specialized courses sums up to 26 credits in the different grouping of the courses.
