Stuttgart-Queen's Dual MSc Degree Program

The Stuttgart-Queen's Dual Master's Degree Program enables students from both Queen's and Stuttgart the opportunity to acquire a Master of Science - Chemistry degree from Queen's and a Master of Science - Chemie degree from Stuttgart simultaneously. The program is divided into stages, and is to be completed in two (2) years.

Each university may send up to five (5) students to be enrolled on a full-time basis at the other institution. Students will be nominated based on academic merit, past work and extracurricular experiences, as well as a demonstration of strong motivation to participate in the program.

Student's interested in participating in the Dual Master's Degree Program should contact their home institution's Chemistry/Chemie department.
