ECTN is the owner of the brands: Eurobachelor®, Euromaster® and Eurolabel® . The labels are extremely flexible and open, so that they do not force universities to work according to a fixed pattern. The framework can be downloaded at the Documents page.

ECTN has developed a framework for a first cycle qualification in chemistry, called Chemistry Eurobachelor®. The framework was approved in October 2003 by the Assembly of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences EuCheMS. Although it was designed for a 180-credits degree, Eurolabels can also be applied by institutions which decide to award a 240-credits first cycle degree. It can also cover degrees with a strong chemistry component such as biochemistry, biological chemistry, chemical biology or chemical technology BSc. “Non-traditional” universities (Hogeschool, Fachhochschule, Haute École, etc.) can also make use of the framework in their chemistry or chemistry-related first degrees.

Following the successful introduction of the Chemistry Eurobachelor®, ECTN has developed a framework for a second cycle qualification in chemistry, the Chemistry Euromaster®. This is designed for degrees with between 90 and 120 ECTS credits. It can also cover degrees with a strong chemistry component such as biochemistry, biological chemistry or chemical biology. “Non-traditional” universities (Hogeschool, Fachhochschule, Haute École, etc.) can also make use of the framework in their chemistry or chemistry-related second degrees. The Euromaster® potfolio of ECTN has been supplemented with the Chemical Technology Euromaster® label.

After the successful Chemistry Eurobachelor® and Chemistry Euromaster® labels, ECTN has developed a framework for a third cycle qualification in chemistry, the Chemistry Doctorate Eurolabel®. This is designed for degrees with around 90 ECTS credits. Usually it means 3-5 years long PhD studies including research, traditional courses and teaching elements.
