Application Requirements

Since many Master’s degrees in Chemistry are very interdisciplinary, students who received their first academic degrees in various related subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, research-oriented Human or Veterinary medicine, Biochemistry or Material Sciences are admitted. In some cases, specific courses taken or a demonstrable interest in certain questions of the discipline may be required. Check on the course websites to discover what applies to you. For most programs, entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admission process, you only have to hand in standard certificates (your first degree certificate, a transcript of records). These typically include your CV, a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of reference. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate.
