This international two-year joint master degree programme, Excellence in Analytical Chemistry (EACH), educates specialists in analytical chemistry well qualified to work in industry (food, pharmaceutical, materials, energy, etc) and chemical analysis laboratories (environment, food, health, etc) worldwide. EACH provides knowledge and skills in both fundamental and applied aspects of modern analytical chemistry.
The programme is taught by four universities:
- University of Tartu (UT, coordinator), Estonia;
- Uppsala University (UU), Sweden;
- University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (UCBL), France;
- Åbo Akademi University (AAU), Finland.
The language of instruction is English, but students will also learn to communicate in one of the languages of the countries involved.
Why study Excellence in Analytical Chemistry?
• Study at two outstanding European universities: the first year is spent at UT, and then you can choose between UU, UCBL or AAU.
• Choose between high-profile international companies approved by the EACH Academic Board for mandatory internship placement.
• 80% of alumni secure a job in just a few months after graduation at research and development departments of major companies; chemical and pharmaceutical industry labs; and health, consumer and environmental protection agencies.
• UT belongs to the top 1% most-cited universities and research institutions in Chemistry (ESI 2021).
Please see the programme structure in our Study Information System
The EACH programme is meant to help in filling this gap by providing contemporary, practically oriented education in analytical chemistry. It has been estimated that up to 50% of chemistry graduates (depending on country) work at different analysis or testing laboratories. These factors enable us to rate the employability of EACH graduates as very good.
Excellent international career prospects:
- R&D departments of major companies
- Chemical industry labs
- Pharmaceutical industry labs
- Health and environmental protection agencies
- Food processing and manufacturing quality assurance labs
- Certification, standardization and accreditation authorities
- National Centers and Institutes of Metrology
- Academic career and PhD studies
