Why study science in Gothenburg

The Faculty of Science offers challenging multi-disciplinary Master's programmes, most of them open to international students. Our Master's programmes are of high quality and are closely connected to our research. Studying science at the advanced level will give the student the ability to think critically, manage scientific methods and communicate science.

  • The duration of the Master's programmes is two years (120 hec).
  • The Master's programmes are open to students with a Bachelors degree or the equivalent.
  • If you have citizenship in EU, EEA country, or Switzerland, you are not required to pay application or tuition fees in Sweden.
