Requirements and knowledge required for access

Candidates for the Master's degree program in Chemical Sciences must hold a Bachelor's degree in the L-27 Science and Chemical Technology class or the corresponding class according to DM 509/99, with full recognition of the required curriculum to undertake graduate studies. Graduates from other classes and those with foreign degrees, deemed eligible and demonstrating the necessary competencies for successful studies, may also apply.
