The specialisation provides a firm basis in theoretical and computational chemistry and a cutting-edge expertise in the field of electronic structure calculations for molecules and materials, molecular dynamics simulations, reaction dynamics and spectroscopy-related research areas. A central theme is to provide foundations that will allow you to embark on advanced studies in a range of modern research fields in academia or in industry.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
This specialisation in Theoretical Chemistry will give you in-depth knowledge of advanced topics of theoretical and computational chemistry and is developed in cooperation with world leading research groups in this field at the university. You will have lecturers who are experts in, e.g., chemical bonding and electronic structure theory, molecular dynamics simulations, and reaction dynamics and you will have the opportunity to do your degree project in a dynamic and world-class research environment using state-of-the art computational methods and equipment.
One central theme of this programme is to provide a foundation that will allow you to embark on advanced studies in a range of modern research fields in academia or in industry. Some important examples of such areas are sustainable energy and fuel solutions, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and photocatalysis, new materials and their properties, and molecular spectroscopies of various flavours. Thus in your thesis in theoretical chemistry you will have access to a range of chemistry areas to specialise in, and you will be well-equipped for a further career in academia or industry.
During the programme you can expect to:
- get a personal mentor who helps you prepare for your future career
- build a foundation that will allow you to embark on advanced studies in a range of modern research fields in academia or in industry
- 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 relevant skills. You have not, anyway, forgotten too much of your broad chemistry base. You have a firm basis in physical and theoretical chemistry, and possibly some experience in computational chemistry. Your university was also well equipped with experimental facilities so you have good practical training, 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 and physics, of which at least 60 credits must be 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).
