Master's Degree in Chemistry in Europe

Chemistry

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Chemistry developed into a practiced science thanks to methods which were introduced by Sir Francis Bacon. He along with another group of scientists in Oxford restructured old traditions of alchemy into a more disciplined scientific study.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
