ECTN has developed a framework for a first cycle qualification in chemistry, called "Chemistry Eurobachelor®". The framework was approved in October 2003 by the Assembly of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences EuCheMS and in June 2004 by the Bologna Process Seminar "Chemistry Studies in the European Higher Education Area". Although it was designed for a 180-credits degree, the framework can also be applied by institutions which decide to award a 240-credits first cycle degree. 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 Eurobachelor® is flexible and open, so that it does not force universities to work according to a fixed pattern.

Following the successful introduction of the ECTN has developed a framework for a second cycle qualification in chemistry, the "Chemistry Euromaster®". This is designed for degrees with between 90 and 120 ECTS credits. 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 second degrees. The Chemistry Euromaster® is extremely flexible and open, so that it does not force universities to work according to a fixed pattern.

After the successful Chemistry Eurobachelor® and Chemistry Euromaster® Label, the ECTN has then developed a framework for a third cycle qualification in chemistry, the "Chemistry Doctorate Eurolabel®". This is designed for degrees with 90 ECTS credits. The Chemistry Doctorate Eurolabel® is extremely flexible and open, so that it does not force universities to work according to a fixed pattern.
