Understanding the processes in our environment

I have always been very interested in chemistry and science, but wanted to learn more about and understand the processes in our environment. One of my teachers at school recommended the Applied Chemistry programme because of my interests. I applied and was accepted straight away – which I was really pleased about.

Top job prospects right here in Krems

Krems is a great place to do a degree like this, because the area has companies operating in the industry that offer internships and entry-level jobs. You’re assured of top job prospects – the industry can’t wait for us to graduate.

Practical focus and international outlook

IMC Krems has an excellent reputation and a very international outlook, with students from all over the world. This makes it really special. And the Applied Chemistry programme is also an exceptional degree because of the focus on application – its practical design is especially attractive in the context of chemistry. I’m particularly interested in inorganic chemistry. It’s so diverse and varied, with so many applications. At IMC Krems there is a special focus on computer-assisted methods – this is very forward-looking and provides a promising basis for my career.

My tip

If your first language is German, there’s no need to worry about English being the language of instruction. It’s not a problem at the admissions interview – there’s a really friendly atmosphere. If you're well prepared, you'll be able to pull it off.
