The ASC network aims at preparing students to become experts and develop international skills towards doctoral studies, and/or professional industrial careers in chemical analysis and characterization of the structure of materials.

A mobility scheme ensures that, in addition to high specialization and access to state of the art technologies, students will do a common core curriculum of studies in different higher education institutions throughout Europe.

Students completing this European masters degree with a thesis will be better prepared for European R and D careers in instrument manufactures, spectroscopic laboratories, analytical enterprises or administrative organizations.

Further scientific progress towards PhD programmes will also be made available.

Type of degree:
Double/Joint ChemistryEuromaster® of Science with thesis diploma in «Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry» awarded by the universities of the consortium, after completion of 90 ECTS of courses and 30 ECTS of a Master thesis.

A diploma supplement will be provided.

The Chemistry Euromaster® Label has been awarded on 01.12.2008 by the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association (ECTNA) to the consortium members for the EM Master Course in "Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry" for a period of 5 years.

The Network Universities
Master Course: Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry

* Zaawansowana Spektroskopia w Chemii(Jagiellonian University - Krakow (Poland))
* Metodi spettroscopici avanzati in Chimica(Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna (Italy))
* Spectroscopie Avancée en Chimie(Université Lille1 (France))
* Espectroscopia avanzada en Quimica(Complutense University - Madrid (Spain))
* Fortgeschrittene Spektroskopie in Chemie(University Leipzig (Germany))
* Advanced spectroscopy in Chemistry(University of Helsinki (Finland))

All members of the ASC Consortium are members of the Utrecht network.


A two year (4 semesters, 30 ECTS each) Master programme; courses are taught in english.

The first semester is dedicated to providing all candidates with a common platform in advanced spectroscopic methods, including magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy and diffraction techniques.

In the second and third semesters, more specialised instruction is provided with applications in molecular synthesis, biology, nanotechnology, modelling, green chemistry, medicine, and new energy sources.

The Masters thesis will be strongly encouraged to be based on a collaborative project between two of the partner institutions, thus adding an even more challenging European dimension to the programme.

Erasmus Mundus programme
The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education launched by the European Commission early 2004. The formal programme aims are to enhance quality in European higher education and promote intercultural understanding through co-operation with third-countries, i.e. in principle countries from outside the EU/EFTA zone. The programme is intended to strengthen European co-operation and international links in higher education by supporting high-quality European Master Courses, by enabling students and visiting scholars from around the world to engage in Master level studies at European universities, as well as by encouraging the outgoing mobility of European students and scholars towards third-countries Follow the links for more information about Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for students and scholars).

The Master ASC has been supported during 8 years by the European Commission. The student cohort 2012-2014 is the last one that had got the chance to get an Erasmus Mundus scholarship.

The Erasmus Mundus Master Course (for the 2008-2014 period)

The Erasmus Mundus programme is aimed at identifying, recognising and supporting high-quality European Master Courses. These Erasmus Mundus (EM) Master Courses are expected to be integrated programmes offered by at least three higher education institutions in three different European countries. There is no formal maximum to the number of institutions involved in an EM programme. The minimum requirement with respect to EM students is that they take classes and earn credits in at least two of these institutions in two different European countries. Graduates will receive a double, multiple or joint diploma. EM Master Courses offer study grants for third-country graduate students and scholarships for non-European visiting professors.

The higher education institutions jointly offering an Erasmus Mundus Master Course are referred to as Erasmus Mundus consortium. Such an Erasmus Mundus consortium must have the following features:

Joint criteria for admission and examination:

Students must be able to apply to a single programme with common standards for admission, a common application procedure and a joint student selection process. Examinations passed at one institution of the consortium are recognised fully and automatically by the other institutions of the consortium.

Course integration:

The EM consortium delivers a jointly developed curriculum or the consortium member institutions fully recognize all courses which are developed and delivered separately, but make up a common standard course.


All EM students have to take classes in at least two of the institutions participating in the consortium.

Guaranteed award of a recognised joint or a multiple degree upon graduation:

The EM programme has to award a double degree as a minimum requirement. A double or multiple degree is defined as two or more national diplomas issued officially by two or more institutions involved in an integrated study programme. A joint degree is defined as a single diploma issued by at least two of the institutions offering an integrated study programme. The degrees are formally recognised in the countries where the degree-awarding institutions are located, and have the same formal status as national degrees.


Pre-requisite level: Eurobachelor in Chemistry or equivalent degree. Students from all over the world can apply.
3rd countries* students with outstanding academic records are eligible for a category A Erasmus Mundus Scholarship.

Eu students with outstanding academic records are eligible for a category B scholarship.

The same application file will be examined both for admission to the ASC programme and for the selection for an ASC scholarship.

*3rd countries = all other countries than:

* The 27 EU Member States (Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, the UK, Sweden, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bulgaria and Romania)
* The EEA-EFTA states (Island, Liechtenstein and Norway)
