This programme, hosted by the largest chemistry department in Norway, offers you a first-rate, fundamental chemistry education that even includes analytical and nuclear chemistry.
Chemistry is a very comprehensive field of science that is vital for the development of society in many different areas. Discoveries in chemistry have been and are important within medical research, modern agriculture, logistics, environmental work, the invention of construction materials and energy systems, and chemistry is vital for the understanding of biological processes.
Extra teaching resources have been allocated to assist the students with laboratory exercises and weekly tutorials organised in small groups. The chemistry curriculum is supported by courses in physics, mathematics and statistics.
The methods employed in teaching chemistry are diverse, including lectures, traditional classes and work with weekly exercises in small groups. The chemistry programme includes a substantial number of laboratory exercises, which will provide you with a good opportunity to get to know the other students. But you must not think chemists always work in the laboratory. A significant part of modern chemistry is not performed in the laboratory, but on computers in a virtual laboratory.
Additional admission criteria:
In addition to the regular admission requirements, courses in this section require that the applicant can document previous studies in mathematics as well as physics, or chemistry, or biology – at the upper secondary school or university level. Documentation must be submitted together with the application and will be individually evaluated. If the academic level of your subjects is not evident from the documentation, please include specific information on the course.
