The MSc in Medicinal Chemistry programme is open to Danish and international students. The programme is both practical and research oriented and reflects the interests of the business community, research institutions and the public sector. It is also flexible and can accommodate the interests of the individual student, who can specialise in a particular subject area while acquiring general competencies in chemistry.
RESEARCH IS FUNDAMENTAL
Teaching in the programme is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. In this context students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between faculty and students. Students have excellent opportunities for working with researchers in the laboratory. It is also possible to complete a project in collaboration with a private company or a public institution, such as a hospital. For their thesis work, students are connected up to a group of researchers of their choice and can participate in the group’s research projects, academic discussions and articles.
Students can specialise within a broad area in one of the areas of medicinal chemistry in which Aarhus University is particularly strong – synthesis and analysis of potential new pharmaceuticals; structure, activity and pharmacological characteristics of membrane proteins; microscopic structure of bones and other bioinorganic materials; modelling of proteins and their interaction with pharmaceuticals; and drug delivery and chemical biology.
NOT JUST LECTURES AND LAB WORK
There is more to life as a medicinal chemistry student at Aarhus University than courses and lectures. Student life at the Department of Chemistry is stimulating and varied and is centred around Alkymia, the departmental student association. The university’s various student unions also host meetings on issues relevant to your studies.
Medicinal chemistry graduates work across a wide range of fields and institutions. Most jobs, however, are within research, development and consultancy in both public and private sectors, particularly in pharmaceutical and biotech companies. The health services also employ many medicinal chemistry graduates, where for example they may be involved in developing new clinical and chemical diagnostic methods in hospitals. The skills acquired on the programme are also in great demand in the food industry and the agricultural sector. Many graduates continue their studies at Aarhus University with a PhD degree, often with interdisciplinary research projects.
The following Bachelor’s degrees qualify students for admission to the Master’s degree programme in Medicinal Chemistry:
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Medicinal Chemistry from Aarhus University, the University of Southern Denmark or the University of Copenhagen.
The following other degrees can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme in Medicinal
- A Bachelor of Science degree amounting to at least 60 ECTS credits in Medicinal Chemistry as well as basic courses in Mathematics, physics and statistics can qualify the student for admission.
Other qualifications can provide admission to the Master’s degree programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.
Upon admission further requirements regarding composition of the degree programme may be stipulated.
Since English is the language of instruction in all subjects, all applicants are required to provide evidence of their English language proficiency.

Legal right of admission
Students with a Bachelor’s degree programme in Medicinal Chemistry at Aarhus University have the right to be admitted to the Master’s degree programme in Medicinal Chemistry on the condition that application is made with a view to continuing directly from the Bachelor’s degree programme to the Master’s degree programme. The legal right of admission requires receipt of the application by Aarhus University within the appropriate period of time. Read more about legal right of admission.
As the Master’s programme only admits a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme.
Allocation of student places is based on an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assess applicants on the basis of the following criteria:
- Overall grade level – Bachelor’s degree
- Grades achieved on relevant courses*
- Relevant courses* (measured in credit units) included in your Bachelor’s degree
* Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of Medicinal Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics.
Please note that grades obtained after the time of application cannot be included in the assessment of grade level.
The admissions committee assess each applicant on the basis of the information provided in diplomas, transcripts, and course descriptions.
