Double Degree
The Master in Chemical Sciences will be awarded to students who have shown:
· To have knowledge and understanding that is founded upon and extends that of the Bachelor's level in Chemistry, and that provides a basis for originality in developing and applying ideas within a research context;
· To have competences which fit them for employment as professional chemists in chemical and related industries or in public service;
· To have attained a standard of knowledge and competence which will give them access to third cycle course units or degree programmes.
Such graduates will:
· have the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities, in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to chemical sciences;
· have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgements with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgements;
· have the ability to communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously;
· have developed those learning skills that will allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous, and to take responsibility for their own professional development.
The students with the degree in Chemical Sciences would be entitled to work in public and private-owned laboratories as highly qualified scientists. They could supervise the planning, production and characterization of new products and/or new materials, collaborate in the development of novel technologies, elaborate reports, handle and present chemical information. They could find positions in chemical industry, especially in pharmaceutical and fine chemicals companies, but also in the agrochemical, cosmetic and food chemistry, or teach Chemistry in High Schools.
They can also apply for Doctorate programmes, preferentially in Chemical Sciences, in our University or abroad. On average, around 25% of our students do so, after receiving the degree in Chemical Sciences.

Application and admission: Open with entry requirements examination.

English language

Students must have level B2 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B2 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.

Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.

Students enrolled at the Master in Chemical Sciences course are encouraged to apply to the Erasmus Plus actions, where various positions are available in 20 European universities. They can earn their credits by following courses and/or by performing part of their experimental thesis abroad. Before leaving, students must submit a Learning Agreement to be approved by the Teaching Board: this approval is mandatory for the acquisitions of the credits.

Mandatory for laboratory courses; highly recommended for other teaching courses.

The tuition fees for students enrolled in Bachelor's, Master's and single-cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments with different calculation methods and payment schedules:

  • The amount of the first instalment is the same for all students
  • The amount of the second instalment varies according to the ISEE University value, the degree programme and the student status (on track / off track for one year or off track for more than a year) 
  • An additional fee is due for online programmes

The University also offers:

  • Concessions for students meeting high merit requirements
  • Diversified tuition fees according to the student's home country for international students with assets/income abroad
  • Concessions for international students with refugee status

Scholarships and benefits

The University provides a range of financial benefits to students meeting special requirements (merit, financial or personal conditions, international students).
