Different specialisations

You can choose between three different specialisations in chemistry: 

Each specialisation allows you to focus on an area of chemistry you are interested in with courses that cover details and mechanisms within each field in-depth. 

Application and programme information

The webpage for each specialisation has specific information about entry requirements and applcation, as well as useful information such as recommended programme structure and degree requirements. 

You can apply for a master's programme in chemistry before you have completed you bachelor's degree and then be conditionally accepted, which means that you must have completed your bachelor's degree before the start of the master's programme. Remember you must be able to prove that you have applied for or recieved your bachelor's degree no later than the day before roll call for your master's programme to be allowed to attend.
