  1. Postgraduate Diploma in Analytical Chemistry
  2. Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry
  3. Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry with Merit, and
  4. Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry with Distinction

Requirements for the degree

  1. Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry
    To qualify for the degree of Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry, a student must obtain:
    • a grade of no less than a C- (Grade Point 1.67) for all the course subjects as well as for the independent research dissertation.
    • a satisfactory grade for the seminar, and
    • a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or above.
      Note: Grade attained in retake courses will replace the old grade, which will not be included in the GPA calculation.
