January 2011 saw the launch of the International Year of Chemistry and commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel Price in chemistry to global chemical researcher Marie Curie, which has contributed strongly to other hundreds of scientists in this field, with great leaps of human development, and confirmed through its research and discoveries Chemistry was – and still is – the spearhead of all areas of human progress.

Chemistry simply – for those who do not know – is the science of materials and their components and the study of their structure, properties and interactions among them. It is a science that sees its applications around you everywhere you look at it, or anything you use, starting with the air you breathe, with the dinner you prepare daily!.. Chemistry, in short, casts a shadow over everything around you, and everything inside you, too!

The science of chemistry-especially during the last 100 years-has seen a lot of scientific victories, including the pharmaceutical, agricultural, industrial and other industries, which have revolutionized our normal lifestyle, have not stopped until this moment, where many expect that the future will see a great chemistry intervention in Develop critical solutions to many important health, environmental, industrial and other problems.

Your desire to have a degree in chemistry is likely to carry a lot of opportunities to delve deeper into this area or--more than a dozen of the many areas that are associated with it--more than ever. You will be pushed through your studies to research specific research areas through which you can gain full experience, or you may have the lead in developing new aspects in this broad area.

University degree

The university degree in chemistry aims to provide the student with the necessary knowledge of the basic chemical sciences, either theoretically, or laboratory practice.
In this degree, the student usually studies four courses covering three main sections covering the main departments of Chemistry:
  • Inorganic Chemistry 
  • organic Chemistry 
  • Physical Chemistry
These materials usually focus on teaching them as a general study along with other subjects such as biochemistry, analytic chemistry, physics and some mathematical courses that benefit the study of chemistry.


Postgraduate studies in chemistry gives you more depth in certain scientific areas, develops the student's research skills, focuses on the latest knowledge in these areas, and then builds on and develops them... At the end of your studies you can choose to work for a year in the industry, or study a specific course abroad before graduation, which depends on the type of university you have chosen to study.

If you want to continue with postgraduate studies, you need to determine the type of profession you want, taking into account the extent of your scientific interests and your ability to learn theoretically and practically

Graduate programs are usually the best choice for students who prefer to spend a large part of their careers in conducting independent research or in academia... Taking note that this path requires more autonomy, personal motivation and long hours of hard work in failed experiments and researches, until you reach the success you desire!

Career prospects

A graduate with a university degree in chemistry is prepared and qualified for a wide range of positions in the industrial, governmental and academic fields. The three areas bear many similarities and differences... For example, 
the career path in industry and commercial chemistry is more profitable than others, but it is correspondingly more restrictive in academic and research terms.

The graduate in chemistry can handle multiple subjects related to his study, such as:
  • Medicine 
  • Bio-tech 
  • criminal science 
  • Engineering 
  • materials science

 More recently, the chemistry areas associated with administrative systems have become one of the most prevalent among students, as they provide them with an appropriate level of academic and physical profitability.

Admission Requirements

Always keep in mind that in order to be accepted in chemistry, you have to prove that you have a strong academic background in chemistry, physics, biology, and high scores in these areas.

The fact that you can simply judge yourself if you are suitable for studying chemistry and working with it or not, if you are the type of person who is interested in monitoring operations more than watching the final results, and from your personal qualities of calm and patience and the ability to confront complex problems and seek to solve them, You are certainly qualified to learn chemistry and work with it functionally and academically.

Because the specialty of chemistry deals with all industries and products without exception, your English must be adequate enough to ensure you understand and collect in an excellent way, so usually you are asked to pass the IELTS test to assess your English language level.
