The next requirements are necessary for obtaining the Euromaster label (Chemistry Core). The next competence are required by the applicants to entry to the Master Program in Medicinal Chemistry.

Admission Requirements

a) Students with a Bachelor Degree in Chemistry, Pharmacy, Medicine, Biology or other disciplines closely related to “Medicinal Chemistry” can apply to the “Medicinal Chemistry: Drug Discovery and Design” Master Degree studies. A Bachelor Degree with chemistry (60 ECTS points in the following areas: Analytical chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Organic chemistry, Physical chemistry, Biological Chemistry (Biochemistry), Physics, Mathematics. ) as major subject (Departments of Chemistry and Pharmacy), is the basic requirement to start the “Medicinal Chemistry: Drug Discovery and Design” Master Degree studies.

b) Applicants from other Departments (Department of Biology, Medicine or others related) require, if needed, “bridging courses”, mainly in Chemistry in undergraduate level in order to complete 60 ECTS points in Chemistry field, in case they don’t have in the undergraduate level.

c) The knowledge of the English language at B2 level (high level) is a basic requirement for an applicant to entry to the Master program. The knowledge of the English language is confirmed by relevant examination certificate within the University or at recognised examination centres; further major language knowledge is considered as an additional qualification. The knowledge of the English language is required in advance for acceptance to the program.

The excellent knowledge of the English Language (Level C2) is proved by the following certificates:

i) Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) of Cambridge University

ii) Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) Michigan University

iii) Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) of Central Lancashire University

iv) Certificate in Proficient Communication of Edexcel International London Examinations

v) International English Language Testing System (IELTS) of University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES) – The British Council – IDP Education Australia IELTS Australia

vi) National Certificate in English, Level C2

The very good knowledge of the English Language (Level B2) is proved by the following certificates:

i) Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) of Cambridge University

ii) Advanced Level Certificate in English (AlCE) of the Hellenic American Union

iii) Certificate in English (Council of Europe Level C1) Level 3 – Proficient User, of Central Lancashire University

iv) Certificate in Advanced Communication of Edexcel International London Examinations

v) Test of English for International Communication (Toeic) of Educational Testing Service/Chauncey, Usa

vi) International English Language Testing System (IELTS) of University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES) – The British Council – IDP Education Australia IELTS Australia

vii) Business English Certificate – Higher (BEC Higher) of University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES)

viii) Integrated Skills in English Level 3 of Trinity College London (Trinity ISE III)

ix) National Certificate In English (Level B2)

d) Interview

e) Optional, previous research experience in the field as indicated by the participation of the applicant in related conferences with an oral or a poster presentation.

f) The highest marks in Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology in the undergraduate level are taken into account for the final acceptance ranking of the applicants.
