The Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry programme at the University of Leipzig was developed by a consortium of five universities (Bologna, Helsinki, Krakow, Leipzig, Lille) and is carried out with these international partners. The language of instruction and examination is English.


The aim of the Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry degree course at the University of Leipzig is to impart broad, practically relevant knowledge appropriate to chemistry as a natural science, and in turn enable graduates to work in a variety of areas, such as:

  • in industry, in particular in branches of chemistry, but also in the physics industry, optics, medical technology, scientific instrument construction
  • in non-university research institutions and in state institutions
  • research and teaching as a chemist at universities and other higher education institutions.

In particular, the aim is to enable students to cope in new professional fields, which are often of an interdisciplinary nature. They must be able to think and work independently as scientists and successfully tackle and solve novel problems in various scientific and technical fields.
