Program overview

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Chemistry with a 100% weighting aims to equip students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of Chemistry. Students gain basic knowledge in a variety of fields, acquire experimental skills, and develop the ability to think independently and behave responsibly. Graduates have a good overview of the nature of chemical bonds and are able to apply appropriate methods to solve research questions in the field of chemistry. The broad academic programme prepares students to undertake independent research. 

In view of the speed at which methods, processes and professions in the field develop, the degree programme is intended to provide students with a solid grounding in chemistry and related disciplines. This ensures that following completion of the academic programme, they are able to stay abreast of new developments, enter new fields, and contribute to further development of their subject area in terms of research and technology. In particular, students are prepared to undertake a consecutive Master’s degree programme in Chemistry.
