For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in chemistry or an equivalent degree with credits in chemistry that correspond to the bachelor’s program in chemistry at the Freie Universität Berlin. Please note that "applied chemistry", "chemical engineering" and other subjects like pharmacy or biochemistry generally are not equivalent.

  • With certain restrictions, it is possible to complete the master’s degree program by taking classes solely in English. The necessary English language skills must as a rule be proven by exam results.

Proof of sufficient German (DSH2) or English Skills (IELTS 5.0; TOEFL: Paper 500 or Computer 170 or Internet 80) for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German, which are necessary to understand courses and specialist literature.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The master’s program includes courses in inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry along with courses in such related natural sciences as physics or biology as well as courses outside the natural sciences (language courses, for example).
