Course overview

The aim of this program is to give students a broad foundation in Chemistry enabling them to pursue a Master’s in Chemistry or a related field (environment, nanoscience, biochemistry, science of matter) whether it be in France or Germany.

The program is designed for students who have decided from the outset to study chemistry. The first three semesters are conducted at Bielefeld University. Semesters 1 to 3 focus predominantly on the basics of chemistry. For semesters 4 to 6, students deepen their knowledge by benefiting from the expertise of the Chemistry Department of Université Paris Cité in chemical physics, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry.

There is an internship of minimum two months to be completed in semester 6 at a university laboratory or in industry.
