Organization of courses

Printer-friendly version
/ A multidisciplinary vocation
The organization of chemistry courses allows our students to follow numerous modules in other departments, such as biology and physics, and to consider mixed courses. Our teaching, while offering an opening to the interface of other fields, places chemistry in a double academic dimension and finalized towards the application.
/ Validation / diploma
Except in exceptional cases, the validation of the courses is subjected to examinations whose level ensures the maintenance of a training of excellence.
- L3 Chemistry: 60 ECTS in first year
- Master Chimie (M1 + M2): 120 ECTS in the second and third years
- ENS diploma: 180 ECTS (L3 + M1 + M2) + 36 additional ECTS obtained over the three years of training. Among the 36 ECTS, a minimum of 12 ECTS must be validated in subjects outside the main discipline (chemistry).
/ Opportunities
The training of three years allows to obtain the degree of license, of chemistry master and the diploma of the ENS. A fourth year may be devoted to a long internship (industry, foreign) or a year of study abroad. It can also be devoted to the preparation of the competition of the aggregation within the ENS, to allow students who wish to teach in the secondary or in post-baccalaureate courses.
With a varied training, close contact with the research community, but also the possibility of internships, the department of chemistry opens up a wide range of careers, in particular in public or private research.
