What you learn

The present master has professional and academic researcher orientations and its duration is one year (60 ECTS). All students have to do a compulsory module of Advance Training in Chemistry (15 ECTS) and a Master Thesis of 18 ECT.

Researcher orientation

Students in the academic researcher orientation have to do the Specialized Training module of 15 ECTS and the introduction of research training of 12 ECTS. Specialized Training module offers 5 profiles (Structural Chemistry and Reactivity, Synthetic Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Nanochemistry and New Materials, Advanced Analytical Techniques) of 4 optional subjects of 3 ECTS each. Students have to choose 5 of them in order to complete the 15 ECTS. Those students, who attend three of the four subjects of some of the mentioned specialty profiles, will obtain a mention of this specialty in their title.

Student mobility

UDC holds student mobility agreements with universities and other third-level institutions across four continents. Students are offered several opportunities each year to apply to study abroad in one of these centres (for a single term or for a whole year), with the guarantee that all credits obtained will be duly recognised in their academic record upon their return.

For each round of applications, the University publishes the list of exchange options available to students and, where relevant, the specific conditions associated with each. Students may also apply to the University for funding for international work experience placements and internships.

Work experience placements are accredited in the student's academic record and the European diploma supplement. Students are free to decide in which host company or academic institution within the EHEA they wish to carry out their placement. To assist them in their search, the University has created an online noticeboard with jobs postings and other news.

Work-study placements in A Coruña are arranged by the International Relations Office (ORI) of the UDC in collaboration with the international relations coordinators in the student’s home university. The general entry criteria, rights and obligations of students, and admission and acceptance procedures for the programme, are regulated by the UDC Mobility Policy.
