For Candidates

PhD programme in Chemistry enables gaining a broad knowledge as the basis for future professional careers and competencies necessary for scientific research, as well as the acquisition and development of educational and professional skills. The curriculum primarily consists of scientific research carried out as part of the preparation of a doctoral dissertation, in accordance with an individual research plan prepared by the doctoral student in consultation with the supervisor. Mandatory and optional courses allow individualized and very flexible selection of the education content.
