Welcome to the Department of Chemistry located in the University of Fribourg, Switzerland’s only bilingual university, offering a full academic curriculum both in French and German. A number of Master programmes are taught in English and the University offers a wide range of opportunities for PhD (and doctoral) studies as well as international Exchange and Summer School Programmes.
