Can be followed entirely in English

The Master in Chemistry at UNamur specialises in the fields of both the chemistry of living organisms, especially biological chemistry and medicinal chemistry, and materials chemistry, with a particular emphasis on surfaces and nanomaterials.

Y o u r   o b j e c t i v e s

  •  To gain expertise in the two important branchesof contemporary chemistry:
    • chemistry of living organisms - the chemical aspects of biology and pharmacology;
    • chemistry of new materials, with a particular emphasis on surfaces and micro- and nanomaterials.
  • To give a significant practical dimension to your degree – crucial to your future job prospects – while gaining a thorough knowledge of theoretical chemistry.
  • To be open to other disciplines – notably physics and biology – with a view to working in multidisciplinary research and other careers.

2 YEAR MASTER – 120 CREDITSPartially taught in English

The Master at UNamur develops your expertise in two branches of contemporary chemistry:

  • Chemistry of living organisms: the study of the chemical aspects of biology and pharmacology (protein engineering, drug design strategies, biochemistry of sugars, etc.).
  • Materials chemistry: focuses on new materials and particularly on surfaces and nanomaterials (electrochemistry, surface chemistry, materials microscopy and nanoscopy, etc.).


In addition to specialist subjects in these two areas, you will choose one focus:


  • Programme structure and coursesResearch, to learn about scientific research in the fields of micro- and nanomaterials, macro- and supramolecular chemistry, biomolecules, surfaces and theoretical chemistry.


  • Programme structure and coursesProfessional, to enter the business world, enhance your knowledge with introductory courses in economics, management and patents, and improve your mastery of English or Dutch.


  • Programme structure and coursesTeaching, to prepare to teach at upper secondary level.


To assist you with your thesis, your optional courses will relate to your chosen subject.

You will complete your course with a 3-month placement in Belgium or abroad, at a university, in a research centre or in industry.  This will considerably enhance your career prospects.

1 year master - 60 creditsProgramme structure and courses

The Master 60 will provide you with a basic grounding in biological chemistry, surface chemistry and chemistry of micro- and nanomaterials, as well as in theoretical chemistry.
