    Short overview:

  • You can apply for admission to the master’s programme, if you successfully completed a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with at least 6 semesters and obtained 180 Credits. Alternatively, undergraduates can apply when they obtained at least 150 credits.

  • If the bachelor’s subject is not chemistry, the equivalence will be checked by our selection committee.

  • International applicants have to submit a proof of sufficient knowledge of the German (DSH 2 level) or English (GER C1 level, others as mentioned in the formal regulations) language.

  • If there are twice as many applicants as there are places, a selection interview will take place. If there are less or equal as many applicants as places, the selection interview does not take place.

  • The selection committee for the master´s programme in chemistry decides about the equivalence.

  • Should you have any questions, please contact the Dean´s office.
