Chemistry (MSc)

About the programme


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


JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.
