This specialisation provides you with cutting-edge expertise in the field of organic chemistry. Your studies combine theoretical knowledge and practical skills covering various important topics of organic chemistry. These include modern synthesis methodology, training in synthesis design, experimental verification and optimisation in the laboratory, and practical application of spectroscopic techniques.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
In the specialisation Organic Chemistry, within the Master’s Programme in Chemistry you have lecturers who are experts in, e.g., organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry, natural product chemistry, development of new analytical methodology, supramolecular chemistry, drug development for complex diseases, and chemistry of carbon allotropes.
The specialisation has been developed in cooperation with world leading research groups in this field at the university and you have the opportunity to do your degree project in a dynamic and world-class research environment. This will leave you well-equipped for either future research within academia or research and development in industry.
During the programme you can expect to:
- get a personal mentor who helps you prepare for your future career
- includes modern synthesis methodology, training in synthesis design, experimental verification and optimisation
- be a part of 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.
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).
