|Study location||Hungary, Debrecen|
|Type||Graduate (master), full-time|
|Nominal duration||4 semesters (120 ECTS)|
|Tuition fee||$7,000.00 per year|
|Application fee||$150.00 one-time|
Undergraduate (bachelor) diploma (or higher)
Relevant Bachelor degree is required.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
You must take the original entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
You can apply with scan copies of your documents, however you will present their originals to the university during enrollment (in mid-September or mid-February) and they (scan copies and originals) have to be the same documents.
Applications are accepted from the following territories (based on citizenship): World.
English language proficiency (TOEFL 547 /IELTS 6.0 /oral examination)
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
If you don’t meet the admission requirements, you can have an additional preparatory semester (or year) program (pre-master). This bridging program is dedicated to those students who do not have required credits and courses from their former studies, therefore, they are unable to enroll the intended master’s program. The tuition fees of the pre-master program are as same as for the relevant bachelor’s program and any pre-master program starts in both semesters (in September and in February).
Graduates of the MSc programme have significant knowledge in all major fields of chemistry including inorganic, organic, physical, biological, analytical, structural, theoretical and technical chemistry. They acquire advanced application skills in chemistry during laboratory courses with special emphasis on synthetic and structural chemistry and the application of the most common analytical techniques. Possessing broad knowledge in the use of chemical literature, they work successfully in both the chemical industry and chemical laboratories including research and development areas.

d/ Without specialization
Advanced courses can be selected from all major fields of chemistry (e.g. organometallic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry, catalysis, theoretical physical chemistry, chemical kinetics, carbohydrates, pesticides, biocolloids, etc.)
Optional courses (e.g. management, philosophy, etc.) (6 credits)
Thesis (30 credits)
Specializations: Synthetic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Radiochemistry
MSc graduates have the appropriate skills to continue their studies in doctoral schools of chemistry at the University of Debrecen or at any university throughout the world.
