Education in Chemistry

Lund University

Our facilities

Education in chemistry is carried out at the Chemical centre, the largest centre for chemistry education and research in the Nordic countries. Here advanced research labs rub shoulders with modern facilities for education, such as different types of well-equipped course labs, computer rooms, group study rooms and quiet study rooms. We also have our own library that can help you with anything from ordering course literature to publishing your degree project, as well as your own printing office, which for example prints different types of course material. 

Facilities for education

The Chemical centre has modern facilities for different types of education. These include:

Student spaces

During the summer 2019 a whole section of the Chemical centre was renovated to offer a range of facilities for students outside scheduled hours. 

There is a completely new lunch room for students where you can heat your food, as well as a board room for the student's union. 

Group study rooms are for smaller groups of students and are available in different sizes. You do not need to book them and are the perfect place to meet up to write group projects, or to study for the exam together. 

There is a quiet study room if you want to study in peace, and find that easier to do somewhere other than at home. 

Research equipment and infrastructure

The Chemical centre is not just a centre for learning, but also one of the largest chemistry research centres in the Nordic countries with access to state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure. This includes electron microscopes, an orbi-trap mass spectrometer and NMR-instruments. In addition, our scientists are involved in and have regular contact with the large scientific infrastructure in the region, the synchotron MAX IV, and will also use the neutron source ESS that is being build just outside Lund. This specialised equipment is used in some of our advanced courses, with the possibility to experience using them during your degree project.
