  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    Graduates can use their skills in various positions in basic and applied research. Although they are not fully qualified for teaching, they can prepare special activities and seminars at primary and secondary schools (e.g. seminars for gifted students, preparation for the Olympiads and different competitions, or for entrance exams to higher education institutions). They can also get involved in the popularization of chemistry. Graduates can pursue their studies in the follow-up Master's study programme – to become fully qualified teachers of chemistry at secondary schools.

  • Practical Training
