The Master of Chemistry programme at KU Leuven prepares you to conduct solid research in an academic or industrial setting. You apply your newly acquired knowledge and skills to identify a research question, to establish its chemical and social context, and to design a pathway to address this particular question.
Many career options are available to our graduates. More than half of our alumni work in the industrial field, while others are employed within academia and other research institutes.
The chemical industry is a major sector throughout Europe and the world. Possible employment in this field is enhanced by obtaining a PhD. Professional domains where chemists are required include petrochemistry, the medical sector, the pharmaceutical industry, agrochemistry, food industry, government and public administration, and other research institutes.

We are not aware of any academic requirements for this programme.
- For applicants from outside Belgium, comparability of the diploma is not always easily established. Therefore we ask you to upload the following documents with your application:
- Scans of transcripts and diplomas are required for all applicants. These documents are sufficient for all applicants from universities that have an exchange agreement with the Faculty of Science of KU Leuven or universities that are in the global top 200 in the most recent Times Higher Education or QS rankings.
- Additional documentation is required for applicants from other universities as it is impossible for us to reliably assess the comparability. In those cases the admission board will take a positive decision only if supporting information is provided:
- a complete list of course titles for which you have obtained a credit should be part of this. Indicate the course size (in ECTS-credits) and the result you obtained, preferably according to the ECTS-scale; if a different scale is used, please provide an summary explanation on the meaning of the scores.
