During the first semester you take courses which will give you the basis for the more specialised ones during the following two semesters. Photochemistry, electrochemistry, and materials chemistry and catalysis are necessary for a thorough understanding of, e.g., solar cells, batteries and photocatalysis, and the lecturers are all active researchers, which means that you will be able to discuss current research trends with leading experts.
During the third semester you will use your knowledge and skills in a half-semester course about energy conversion and storage, before beginning your degree project.
The versatility of the field is also evident from where the you can do your Master's thesis project, which could be in the research group where you have your mentor or in another group, doing research in a related field. In the Uppsala region, there are also many large or small companies where you can find challenging projects, which will further add to your contact network.
The Chemistry - Renewable Energy specialisation is offered at Uppsala UniversityCareer
Possible career paths can vary. You may work with research and development, production processes, analysis of materials, management of safety and legal issues, patenting of inventions, marketing and sales, or environmental and sustainability issues.
You will study chemistry courses which provide you with the theoretical and experimental skills needed for the subsequent semesters.
In the very first course, you will meet many of the chair professors in the different fields of chemistry who will give seminars about what are the current trends in their respective research fields.
During the second semester, you will take courses in areas related to physical and materials chemistry, including photochemistry, advanced electrochemistry, and materials chemistry and catalysis.
The third semester includes a course in chemical energy conversion and storage. The programme ends with a degree project.

The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
