The Master's programme in Chemistry requires a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Zurich or another recognised university. Transfer with a BSc in Chemistry 180 of UZH is possible without any conditions.
For transfer to the Master's programme with a BSc 150, the following modules must have been taken in the Bachelor's programme as part of the compulsory elective and/or elective modules:
If not all of these modules were taken in the Bachelor's degree, they can also be taken in the Master's degree, whereby a maximum of 10 ECTS of these can be credited as elective modules in the Master's degree.

If these modules or some of them were not completed during the Bachelor's programme, they must be taken in the Master's programme. A maximum of 10 ECTS can be credited as elective modules. In addition, a maximum of 11 ECTS from the compulsory elective modules/special lectures of the Master's programme can be replaced by the modules to be made up.
The Master's programme in Chemistry requires a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Zurich or another recognised university. In addition to the study programme in chemistry, which comprises 90 ECTS credits, a minor study programme comprising 30 ECTS credits can be taken.
In the Master's programme, students deepen their knowledge in selected areas of chemistry. The Master's thesis is an independently conducted scientific research project that lasts 9 months. The Master's programme is completed with the interdisciplinary Master's examination.
With the Master of Science in Chemistry, students have the qualification to take up independent research work (doctoral thesis) or, after additional pedagogical and didactical training (60 ECTS credits), to teach chemistry at Matura schools.
