Postgraduate Studies in Chemistry

A laurel-crown.Postgraduate studies comprise of 4 years of fulltime studies and leads to a doctoral degree. The PhD-studies consists of a number of courses and research for the doctoral thesis. After completing halftime it is possible to conclude witha licentiate degree.

To be admitted to a postgraduate program you need to:

  • fulfil the prerequisite requirements for the subject in question
  • have the ability in general to cope with the program 

one Study plan - three parts

Details regarding the studies are specified in the study plan. The study plan for doctoral education consists of three parts: a general part that is common for the Faculty of Science and Technology, a subject-oriented part (the subjects are listed below), and each doctoral student's individual study plan. (All links below opens the respective study plan as a pdf.) 

The subject-oriented part of the study plans are the following:

Syllabus for the subject Chemistry, (without specialization).

Syllabus for the specializations within chemistry: Analytic Chemistry, Biophysics, Chemical PhysicsInorganic chemistryMaterials Chemistry, Microbial Chemistry, Molecular Biomimetics, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry and Theoretical Chemistry

Syllabus for the subject Biochemistry, which is a separate research subject and not included as a sub-category of Chemistry.

To get an idea of the subjects and the specializations within chemistry, we recommend that you read about each program on our research pages
