Chemistry (MSc)

About the programme


There is an optional preparatory course to improve the linguistic abilities of the students before beginning the four-semester programme, in which theoretical studies are complemented by laboratory practical training. Students of the MSc Chemistry programme acquire an extended knowledge and understanding of the most important experimental and theoretical principles in chemistry. The basic theoretical education contains courses in mathematics, physics and informatics. Students prepare their own short-term research projects in the second semester. This is a requirement for laboratory training.


Presentation skills are also developed during this training. The programme ends with a final examination. A prerequisite for graduation is the successful defence of a Thesis work, which is the result of two semesters of research in one of the research groups at the Institute. One of the most distinguished professor of our university was the late Albert Szent-Györgyi, who was awarded the Nobel prize in 1937.


Specialisation options: Pharmaceutical chemist, material science chemist, analytical chemist. Our graduates pursue careers as professional chemists in chemical and related industries, or in public service.

SZTE Experience

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.

I’m from Brazil, but I feel very comfortable in Szeged. Attending the courses, I acquired thorough knowledge, which was helped by the well-equipped labs, and the modern library of the University. Despite the hustle and bustle, the town is still safe, the quality of life is considerably high, and we receive every assistance to fit in, such as excellent program administration or help searching for accommodations.
