Admission and Enrolment Procedures for general registration

A student with no major in applied chemistry and physics from UCL, nor any option deemed equivalent, shall submit an application to the Faculty of applied sciences, including a detailed past curriculum (courses and grades by year). Engineering Bachelors are exempted from this procedure, if they have a minor in applied chemistry and physics from UCL, or an option deemed equivalent. The Faculty, after consulting the Applied chemistry and physics diploma committee, will decide as to the applicant’s admissibility, pursuant to rules relative to links between degrees. Moreover, the Faculty can propose a customized curriculum, by drawing on the volume of elective courses of the KIMA curriculum and, if necessary, up to 15 additional credits. For some students (e.g. bachelors in industrial engineering), the Faculty might require an additional year of studies prior to the Master’s, corresponding to 60 credits of the major in applied chemistry and physics.
