The three-year, 180-credit Bachelor’s in Chemistry degree allows students to acquire basic training in the various fields of chemistry, as well as the necessary notions of mathematics, computer science, physics and biology.

Access conditions

For information on access to undergraduate studies, visit the Registration Office pages.

Target audience

Students interested in studying chemistry or biochemistry at university level.

Program and structure

The first block is spent consolidating and going deeper into the subjects covered at secondary school, mainly in chemistry, but also in mathematics, physics and biology.

The courses taught in the second and third blocks of the Bachelor’s in Chemistry cycle are designed to give students a solid basic training in the essential subjects of physical chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, polymer chemistry, materials chemistry and biochemistry.

Particular emphasis is placed on the experimental aspect of chemical sciences through the numerous practical sessions and individual assignments supervised by a team of motivated teachers and assistants.

Students have access to laboratories in the Mendeleev building of UMONS which is mainly used for chemistry. In addition to standard chemistry equipment, they are equipped with numerous analytical devices which are sometimes supplemented with the latest equipment from research laboratories.

In the third block, students are required to design activities to popularise chemistry and present these to the general public during the Printemps des Sciences event.

English, an essential lingua franca in the scientific world, is an integral part of the curriculum, and is taught from the first year onwards through a specific course and through individual assignments.

Basic training in computer science is also provided through a course on scientific programming.

Teaching profile

The programme description defines the expected learning outcomes at the end of the cycle (Bachelor's, Master's, etc.). The programme description defines the expected learning outcomes, i.e. what the student should know, understand and be able to achieve at the end of a learning activity, a teaching unit or a study cycle (Bachelor's, Master's, etc.). Learning outcomes are defined in terms of knowledge, expertise and soft skills.

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of the subject.
  • Communicate information clearly and accurately.
  • Collaborate and work in a team.
  • Develop personally and professionally.
  • Have a rigorous scientific approach.

For more information, consult the course description for this study cycle below.


The Bachelor's in Chemistry does not lead to a professional career. Generally, graduates of this degree continue their studies in this field until Master level, as well as in fields such as Biochemistry. Such access is sometimes conditional on a subsequent study programme.
