Graduate Study in Germany

iMOS is an accredited Masters of Science degree granting program offered by the Fakultät für Chemie und Biochemie at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Many program instructors are affiliated with the research at the Ruhr Explores Solvation (RESOLV) German Cluster of Excellence. A specialized year of iMOS coursework also fulfills the requirements of the preparatory Fast-Track / Track II for doctoral students at both places: the Graduate School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, GSCB, and the intergated Graduate School Solvation Science, iGSS.
