11 Free Master’s in Chemistry in Europe

Updated on May 26, 2017

Chemistry is truly the "central science". New breakthroughs in fields such as genetics, biochemistry, medicine, materials science, forensics, nanotechnology, drug discovery, the environment and next-generation computer hardware are all driven by chemistry.

Tuition-free European countries like Germany and Norway offer international students the opportunity to earn a master's degree in a Chemistry discipline, in English, irrespective of their country of origin, for free. International students can study for free and also get the opportunity to travel around Europe, learn a new language, and make some lifelong friends. It's amazing that this free education is extended even to non-EU students.

11) Norwegian University of Science and Technology---MSc in Chemistry / MSc in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry

The 2-year programme in chemistry gives students academic specialization within topics such as Applied theoretical chemistry, Organic chemistry, or Structural chemistry. The objective of the programme is to educate chemists who are able to work independently with chemistry at a high level.

This programme, MSc Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, provides the vital link between environmental toxicology and environmental chemistry. The main focus of the programme will be the fate and effects of pollutants, and how they are distributed in the environment (including air, water, soil and food chains) both on a local and a global scale. You will study the interaction between environmental toxicants and organisms, and how this impacts on populations and ecosystems.

10) University of Stavanger---MSc Biological Chemistry

By the end of this programme, students will have acquired practical and theoretical skills in molecular biology, biophysical chemistry, and practical bioinformatics.. They will also have experience in various analytical techniques and research methods, and get training in the presentation of scientific results.

8) University of Tromso the Arctic University of Norway---MSc Chemistry

The 2-year master's programme in Chemistry includes participation as a full member of one of the research groups, carrying out a research project with an independent scientific thesis, equalling 60 credits. Throughout the project, the master's student will work closely in teams with and supervised by PhD-students, post-doctoral fellows and senior scientists (professors).

The master's programme in chemistry offers five disciplines coinciding with the five research groups:
