The definition of the word “chemistry” has evolved over the course of its study and practice. Most agree that the term is a derivative of the word alchemy, which was an ancient practice that combined both mysticism and medicine. One who practiced alchemy was known as an alchemist.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

On the nanometre scale, the distinction between disciplines such as physics, chemistry and biology becomes less clear. A high degree of interdisciplinarity is therefore characteristic for nanotechnology. The Nanoscience programme at Lund University has its scientific base in a physics description of nanoscale phenomena, but in addition to nanophysics you can, depending on your background and interests, choose to specialise in fields such as nanoelectronics, materials science or biophysics.

The programme is part of NanoLund, one of the world’s leading nanoscience research centres. You will interact with cutting-edge research throughout the programme, starting in the first semester and building up to the Master’s project. Moreover, by taking advantage of the wealth of courses offered by Lund University, you will be able to explore the cross-disciplinary nature of nanoscience.... [-]

The programme provides you with the opportunity to acquire an advanced level of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills within the fields of analytical, organic, organometallic and coordination chemistry. Through a combination on of advanced courses and a Master’s degree project or projects, you are given the opportunity to specialise in the fields mentioned. The Master’s degree project must correspond to at least 30 ECTS credits.

Studies build on a previous grounding in chemistry and enable you to develop the ability to apply independent ideas to issues and problems in chemistry or its neighbouring fields.

Programme modules/courses

Compulsory courses: Advanced level courses in chemistry comprising at least 30 credits, of which 15 ECTS should be within the fields stated above, and a Master’s degree project comprising at least 30 credits.... [-]

The purpose of the programme is to give you a broad and fundamental knowledge in the fields of physical, theoretical chemistry and chemical physics. Students develop advanced laboratory skills, profound theoretical comprehension of fundamental mechanisms and a good understanding of practical applications. Special emphasis is given to an unbroken line of understanding, from quantum mechanical description of atoms and molecules to complex supramolecular structures, as well as their industrial and biological applications.

During the first year courses within the fields mentioned above provide you with a suitable base for future studies in these or related subjects. In the second year, you can, to a large extent, influence and plan your studies, with several different possibilities. It is mandatory to complete a Master’s degree project, corresponding to at least 30 ECTS credits.... [-]
