Latest update: 23 March 2021
Congratulations on having been admitted to our Chemistry Master’s Programme at Linköping University (LiU)! We are very much looking forward to seeing you here in August.
You are about to begin to learn chemistry from a somewhat new perspective. Our aim is to tear down the barriers between the traditional subdisciplines in chemistry and start looking at everything from the molecular perspective. By always trying to relate to the molecular structure and think about how it is held together, and which properties the structure gives, we hope that you will see the broader perspectives of chemistry.
We strongly believe that this approach will make you a better chemist, prepared to take on the challenges of today and tomorrow. We are working hard for you to have the best possible learning experience and hope that you are prepared to do the same.
