They will attain generalunderstanding of chemistry and competences which will give them access to more advanced programmes (MSc, then PhD programmes).

They will have the ability to communicate their knowledge to specialist and non-specialist audiences and develop learning skills enabling them to continuously update and refresh their knowledge in chemistry.

The duration of the programme is 6 semesters which include a preparatory module (English language and chemistry-specific preparatory courses ~ 8 weeks), a six-semester theoretical module (~ 6×15 weeks), a summer practical module (~12 weeks).

The six- semester theoretical training will contain courses in mathematics, physics and informatics, all of them geared to the needs of the more demanding Physical chemistry, Industrial chemistry, Analytical chemistry and Computational/ theoretical chemistry courses of the second semester, while the first semester also contains general, inorganic, organic and biological chemistry courses.

The summer practical courses will embrace the teaching of the most important practical skills needed for the above-mentioned core subjects.
