Master's Degree Programme in Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry is a European Joint Degree programme and aims to educate graduates who will have the required expertise to become spectroscopy professionals of a high standard for employment in the international public and private sectors. They will also be well prepared for postgraduate studies.

A consortium of five European universities offers high-level education in chemical spectroscopy. This two-year course (120 ECTS) is taught in English. The consortium consists of the following European higher education institutions: University of Helsinki, Finland; University Lille 1 Lille, France; University of Leipzig, Germany; University of Bologna, Italy and Jagiellonian University Krakow, Poland.

The students admitted to this programme will study at two or more partner universities. Students are encouraged to base their thesis on a collaborative project between two of the partner institutions, thus underlining the European dimension of the programme. A mobility scheme ensures that, in addition to high level of specialization and access to state of the art technologies, students will complete a common core curriculum of studies in different higher education institutions throughout Europe.

Students completing this European master's degree with thesis will find employment in European R&D careers in instrument manufacturing companies, spectroscopic laboratories, analytical enterprises and administrative organizations. Further scientific opportunities towards PhD programmes are also available.

Master's Degree Programme in Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry is one of the European top-quality Masters Courses selected by the European Commission Erasmus Mundus Programme.
