Pre-university programs
 

Students with completed secondary school education—having received the equivalent of General Certificate of Education (UK) or high school diploma (US)—or with at least three completed years of the usual four years of secondary school education (aged 17, in countries where the last year of secondary education is a pre-university program) can apply for the two-semester pre-university program. The prerequisite of acceptance is a good command of English, and preference for the subjects of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics which are the subjects of the pre-university program in this order of significance.
  

The pre-university program is offered in two organisational forms:

Succesful completion of either type of the pre-university programs automatically gives the right for admission to start the ten-semester integrated MSc program.

The six-semester BSc program (jump to details)
 
Students with completed secondary school education—having received the equivalent of General Certificate of Education (UK) or high school diploma (US), including the pre-university program in countries where that exists—can apply for this program. Our curriculum for the BSc degree ensures a firm and broad basic education in chemistry and science. Those completing this degree course will be able to enter the four-semester MSc program if they wish.

The four-semester MSc program (jump to details)
 
   Students with BSc degree follow the specialized section of the curriculum choosing one of the directions (sub directions) of specialization. Their curriculum is organized individually as described below. For students with BSc degree the minimum official duration of the MSc program is four semesters. However, according to our experience they usually need 6 semesters to get the degree. This is because due to differences between universities it is almost always necessary to develop the student’s knowledge by taking up catch-up programs that are essential for the chosen special direction. With all other aspects of the work to prepare the thesis, the usual duration of studies for MSc degree for students with BSc diploma (from universities other than ELTE) can be expected to last for six semesters.
