The master's studies in Chemistry and Molecular Sciences can begin either with the autumn term (HS) or the spring term (FS). Up to two specializations can be chosen. If none is chosen, students study under the "General Chemistry" program. Within each specialization at least 12 ECTS have to be chosen from the indicated core subject courses. The same goes for the "General Chemistry"-program. The remaining ECTS up to a total of 30 ECTS come from the non marked electives in the chosen specialization(s). Electives build a separate module and core subject courses cannot be compensated with electives.                  
ILIAS-links can be found directly in the KSL-entries

Sandra Zbinden:
Please note the exam registration deadlines in KSL. Each Institute has different deadlines.
There is also a rule that you always have to register for the first date of an exam. Repetition exams are only offered to people who failed in the first attempt or were sick/in the military.
