About

Program outline

The aim of this Advanced Materials Master program from Université de Bordeaux is to provide students with a complete training in the domain of chemistry and physical chemistry of materials, starting from the stage of conception, synthesis and elaboration, to physico-chemical characterizations, and their use for specific functions and applications.

The studied materials are very diverse (inorganic materials, polymers, colloidal materials, hybrids, composites etc…) and draw upon the main research fields studied within the laboratories of the University of Bordeaux.
Strengths of this Master?
  • Students develop skills based on the large range of materials topics studied in the University of Bordeaux campus laboratory: inorganic materials, colloids, polymers, hybrid and composite materials etc…
  • Students are trained and equipped to enter both academic (fundamental research) or industrial (more applied research) fields. Whatever their profile, upon completion of their studies, they master a high level of skills in materials science.
  • Students have the opportunity to test and apply their skills during two training periods occurring in Year 1 (two months) and Year 2 (six months) of the Master. These training periods most often take place in the chemistry labs (eight in total) located on the Bordeaux campus but other opportunities are available and may arise in other academic or industrial laboratories.
After this Master program?
  • Master students with good marks may apply for PhD applications in chemistry labs. The local labs offer many opportunities with funding included from various agencies. After a PhD, the majority of our students find employment in the R&D department of chemical companies of various sizes.
  • Master students who do not wish to apply for a PhD have a suitable profile for engineering positions in companies.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score: 79

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • Hold a Bachelor degree with honors or 3-year/180 ECTS equivalent in chemistry, physical chemistry or materials science.
Language requirements:
  • A high-level of English is required
  • IELTS score around 6.5; TOEFL score 79-93; minimal TOEIC score 900.
  • Students with lower marks may be considered.

Tuition Fee

Some grants are available for selected students, which cover tuition fees and also include funds for everyday life: 8,000 € for Master Year 1/5,000 € for Master Year 2.

Funding

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
