Introduction

Introduction

The Bologna process requires universities in Europe to develop easily readable, comparable and compatible degrees. As part of the work in the EU project "Tuning Educational Structures in Europe", the European Chemistry Thematic Network ECTN developed a framework for the 3 cycles qualification in chemistry, the "Chemistry Eurobachelor®", the "Chemistry Euromaster®" and the "Chemistry Doctorate Eurolabel®". Download the TUNING CHEMISTRY guide from the Documentation page.

The framework was approved by the General Assembly of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences EuCheMS (formerly: Federation of the European Chemical Societies) respectively in October 2003 (Chemistry Eurobachelor®) and in October 2006 (Chemistry Euromaster®), by the Bologna Process Seminar "Chemistry Studies in the European Higher Education Area".

Although it was designed according to the Bologna Declaration Recommendation for a 180/120/90-credits degrees structure, the framework can also be applied by institutions which decide to award a 240/90/90-credits cycles degrees. It can also cover degrees with a strong chemistry component such as biochemistry, biological chemistry or chemical biology. "Non-traditional" universities (Hogeschool, Fachhochschule, Haute École, etc.) can also make use of the framework in their chemistry or chemistry-related first degrees. The Chemistry Eurolabels® are flexible and open, so that it does not force universities to work according to a fixed pattern.

ECTN offers interested institutions the possibility of applying for a Label. This Label, which will be awarded for a period of 5 years in the first instance, with a possibility of renewal for further 5-year periods, is intended to promote international recognition of the degree qualification and to document the willingness of the institution to participate fully in the European Higher Education Area which is being constructed in the Bologna process.

The Association has an international Label Committee (see below) which deals with the administration of the Label, it also has European partners (see the Partner's logos on the entry page). For information and applications contact the Label Committee (LC-Contact@ectn-assoc.org).
