The main aims of this Chemistry (Hons) programme at the University of Malta are to develop in students a broad and balanced appreciation of the core areas of chemistry.

Visit the official programme website for more information


This Chemistry (Hons)  course at the University of Malta  touches on inorganic, organic, physical, biological and analytical chemistry, as well as basic knowledge in computational chemistry, macromolecular chemistry, catalysis, colloids, solid-fluid and fluid-fluid interfaces, environmental chemistry, photochemistry and radiochemistry.

It aims to develop:

  • a range of practical skills in the main areas of chemistry in order that they can understand and assess risks and work safely in a chemical laboratory;
  • basic knowledge of the application of chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry;
  • generic skills in the context of chemistry which are transferable and thus applicable in other contexts;
  • the ability to apply standard methodology to the solution of problems in chemistry;
  • a knowledge and skills base from which they can proceed to graduate employment or to further studies in chemistry or multi-disciplinary areas involving chemistry.

Career opportunities

Whilst all programmes of study in Chemistry prepare graduates for a career in the chemical science and related areas such as laboratory analysis and management, by virtue of the units offered in this programme, the course is aimed at producing chemists for the pharmaceutical industry, biochemical industry and environmental chemistry.

The course provides the necessary academic background for a chemistry career in industrial and teaching environments and fulfils the requirements for postgraduate studies at Masters or Doctoral level in chemistry and related subjects.
