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

julieJulie Deschanels- Faculty of Law and Political Sciences- Business Law

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
