In the GDCh headquarters always take questions one at the training and the study of chemistry. Here you can find a selection of them. At this point we would also like to point out that we cannot provide student advice. There are corresponding positions at universities for this purpose. You can find the list of contact persons for this at www.chemie-studieren.de. The answers listed are intended to serve as food for thought and a basis for further research.
planet-beruf is provided by the Federal Employment Agency and provides information on all topics relating to career choice, application and training. The site helps secondary school students (ages 13 to 17) to get a clear idea of their career plans.
There are many options here. Www.chemie-studieren.de can certainly give you an initial overview. There you will also find contact persons for student advice at the respective university. Some universities also offer trial days.
A comprehensive database of all chemistry courses and further information can be found at www.hochschulkompass.de. The GDCh also has various networks that could be of interest for further exchange on chemistry studies. On the one hand there are the JungChemikerForums, in which the students work regionally and organize various events. On the other hand, there are the local associations that organize, for example, scientific lectures at the universities.
The online portal BildungPlus offers a good overview of the currently more than 550 dual courses of study at vocational academies, administrative and business academies, technical colleges and universities.
The database maintained there also contains many attractive training offers from companies in the chemical industry.
We cannot recommend the perfect university to you, the chemistry and the choice of specializations are too diverse for that. It is important to first determine selection criteria based on your interests, skills and opportunities. It can be as simple as deciding whether to stay in your previous place of residence or move. As a second step, you should find out more about the universities or universities of applied sciences, for example via the website or in a conversation with the student advisory service. University rankings can also help here. Further assistance is given at www.hochschulkompass.de. It is also advisable to check your selection criteria again during your studies.
