WELCOME TO THE FACULTY OF CHEMISTRY
FCH BUT welcomes students and visitors from all over the world. Our aim is to maintain an inspiring international environment that is why the faculty has currently almost 50 bilateral agreements with institutions around the world. We actively promote international exchange within the Erasmus+ framework. Among our partner institutions are University of Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim or University of Applied Sciences in Dresden.
The laboratory projects that are led by our scholars in English in various areas of research are the most attractive parts of the study offer. They are open in both winter and summer semester to bachelor’s and master’s degree students. Current topics of the laboratory projects are listed here
FCH BUT also participates in the successful International Staff Week, as well as it encourages our students and academics to gain foreign experience and participate in international activities.

STUDIES IN ENGLISH
The faculty employs the ECTS system. The academic year is divided into two semesters: winter semester (September–January) and summer semester (February–June).
We offer courses in English in the following areas: chemistry of foodstuffs, chemistry and technology of environmental protection, material chemistry, physical and consumer chemistry, biotechnology and many others. Exchange students may also choose from courses offered by other faculties, as well as sports (BUT has its own excellent sporting facilities).
- Environmental Sciences and Engineering: Master’s double degree programme in collaboration with the University Koblenz-Landau (Germany).
Courses at UKL are focused on the processes in various parts of the environment, advanced statistical data processing and environmental economy. At FCH courses specialize primarily on advanced technologies of environmental protection, mostly concerning water, soil and waste processing. The study programme offers several specializations from which students choose according to their preferences: environmental analysis, applied ecology, socioeconomics and environmental management or environmental modelling.
- Doctoral study programmes: Tuition fee of 2 000 EUR/academic year. Doctoral topics: Physical Chemistry, Macromolecular Chemistry, Chemistry, Technology and Properties of Materials, Food Chemistry and Technology
Erasmus+ Application period:
Winter semester + academic year: 31 March to 31 May
