Successful completion of the requirements of the Program

The grading system is numerical, from 0 to 10 with increments of ½. The minimum
passing grade is 5. The final grade of a graduate student is calculated as the grade
point average of all courses passed by the student.

In a postgraduate programme of study, courses can be graded as Success/Failure. These courses do not count towards the student’s GPA, and may not exceed 25% of the programme’s ECTS, with the exception of the dissertation units. All courses are presented in the Postgraduate Studies Prospectus.
The diploma dissertation, thesis, research and writing stages are graded with Success / Failure. The final grade of the dissertation is registered in the last semester of its elaboration. Master level dissertations are calculated qualitatively as Excellent, Very Good, Good, and Failure.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples

Holders of postgraduate degrees in Chemistry are employed in the local industry and the public sector in high and responsible positions, researchers / professors in research centers / universities or secondary school teachers. It should be noted that postgraduate studies in Chemistry lead, in addition to the specialized knowledge, to the development of a wider range of competencies, critical thinking and organizational spirit, which allow graduates to work with claims in areas that are not directly related to research objects Offered by the Department of Chemistry.
