The master degree programme in Chemistry offers graduates:

  • solid basic training in the various fields of chemistry, covering both theoretic and experimental aspects;
  • a good command of methods of scientific investigation;
  • a sound knowledge of mathematical and computer support tools;
  • the ability to work autonomously, and to assume a high degree of responsibility in projects and facilities;
  • the techniques required to understand phenomena at the molecular level;
  • specialist competences in a specific sector of chemistry and biochemistry;
  • sector-specific knowledge of the latest chemical compound synthesis methodologies, such as medicines, bioorganic and bioinorganic molecules, new materials, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts;
  • a solid grounding in the application of theoretic simulation and computational modelling methods to chemical systems.

Chemistry graduates can pursue careers in the promotion and development of scientific and technological innovation, and in technological management and design, and are qualified to assume positions of high responsibility in the following sectors: industry, environment, health, cultural heritage, and public administration.

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.

Double degree

Students with in-depth knowledge of foreign languages who wish to complete part of their university studies abroad may complete periods of study in various foreign universities, thereby obtaining an academic qualification from both their home university and the foreign one (Double Degree).

In particular, the degree course in Chemical Sciences has activated specific agreements with the University Paris-Diderot (France) and the University of Strasbourg (France).

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

Fees, scholarships and benefits

University fees

For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:

  • the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students 
  • the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’-  that is variable.

Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
