The specialisation in Analytical Chemistry provides you with cutting-edge expertise in the field of analytical chemistry. You combine theoretical knowledge and practical skills in various analytical techniques, including advanced statistical methods for data analysis. This is an increasingly important area both for environmental and advanced biomedical analysis, and you will learn more about different chromatographic and other separation techniques and detection methods, not least mass spectrometry.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The Master’s Programme in Chemistry with the specialisation in Analytical Chemistry has strong links to world leading research in the field of mass spectrometric analysis of biological samples. It will go in depth into many different aspects and methods of analytical chemistry, and you will have access to the most advanced research instruments. Your teachers will be leading experts in, e.g., analytical neurochemistry and imaging mass spectrometry and you have the opportunity to do your degree project in a dynamic and world-class research environment, either at the university, at a national research agency, or in a private company. You will gain a firm basis in advanced analytical chemistry, covering all major techniques and acquire a cutting-edge expertise through in-depth studies, especially in the field of advanced mass spectrometry.
During the programme you can expect to:
- get a personal mentor who helps you prepare for your future career
- gain access to the most advanced research instruments
- study at a university with two Nobel prizes in chemistry
A degree from Uppsala University will give you close connection to excellent and world leading research and you will have the opportunity to develop a personal contact network. You will have a personal mentor who will invite you to seminars, group-meetings and other events in order to prepare you for your future career and you will meet PhD students and post-docs who have come to Uppsala to be part of an excellent research environment to do cutting-edge research. Our research groups have a well-developed cooperation with other institutions and research agencies which is beneficial for you when choosing a project for the master thesis, and to make contacts for your future career.
Uppsala University is also part of the SciLifeLab, which can offer suitable projects for those interested in the field of advanced analytical chemistry of biological samples. In the Uppsala region, there are also several large or small companies and research agencies where you can find interesting projects, which will further add to your contact network.
You are probably coming directly from your Bachelor’s degree or have had a relevant job to strengthen especially your experimental skills. You have not, anyway, forgotten too much of your broad chemistry base. Your university was well equipped with experimental facilities so you have good practical training working in a lab, and can select relevant methods and stay safe while doing experiments.
You have an analytical mind and are able and willing to express your thoughts in both writing and speaking. You are extremely motivated and willing to take the responsibility needed to successfully complete your studies.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming into contact with current research and prominent researchers in the respective international field.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Chemistry as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is 90 credits in chemistry.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
