Course of study
Chemistry - Dual-Subject Bachelor's Programme
Within the scope of the Dual-subject Bachelor, you can take Chemistry
- as a Major (90 ECTS) combined with a Minor
- as a primary or secondary dual subject (60 ECTS) or
- as a Minor (30 ECTS) combined with a Major
Chemistry can be studied either in connection with a non-teaching career goal or as a professional teaching qualification. If you want to become a teacher, you must follow the combinations of subjects for each teaching position.
Chemistry is also an essential field in the public school system because of its significance for culture and society, as well as its contribution to promoting creativity and problem solving skills. The ability to draw upon and communicate knowledge of chemistry to a wider public is highly sought after in a variety of career areas, including scientific centres, newspaper editing, associations, and in all those places where modern scientific knowledge needs to be conveyed to a wider audience.
If you enjoy communicating and explaining the ideas, phenomena, knowledge and models that make up chemistry, and if you want to work with ans inspire young people with chemistry, then you should study Chemistry at the University of Oldenburg! A strong academic background in chemistry, mathematics, German, and English (equivalent to years 12 and 13 in the Gymnasium) would be of great advantage for the successful and timely completion of this programme.
German Language Proficiency
You can proof your German language proficiency with the following language certificates:
- DSH: Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang (Level 2)

A completed bachelor's degree is a prerequisite for beginning a master's programme in education that qualifies graduates to teach in the Gymnasium, vocational schools, and for special needs teaching (120 credit points, 4 semesters, degree title - Master of Education), as well as for the Grundschule, Hauptschule, and Realschule (60 credit points, 2 semesters, degree title - Master of Education). Entry to the teaching field generally requires qualifications in two taught subjects.
If students are interested in a non-school-related goal, more information can be found at the professional field of Chemistry (in German).
The application deadline for the winter semester is 15 October.
If applicable, the application deadline depends on the first subject, if it is admission restricted.
