Program description

MSc Chemistry

The complexity of issues as diverse as climate change, energy storage, a cure for cancer, and antibiotic resistance requires a broad chemical knowledge. This program has a strong experimental focus and prepares you for a career working with anything from materials to pharmaceuticals.

As a skilled chemist you can play a key role in solving the challenges we are facing concerning the environment and the health of an aging population. This new master’s program has a modern, molecule-centred approach which transcends the boundaries between traditional branches of chemistry.

Admission requirements

  • Bachelor's degree with a major in the field of chemistry, chemical biology or chemical engineering. The Bachelor's degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) shall be from an internationally recognised university.
  • English corresponding to the level of English in Swedish upper secondary education (English 6/B). This is normally attested by means of an internationally recognised test.
