Special features regarding teachingStudy degree courses are reviewed within the framework of system accreditation; sufficient laboratory space and good supervision ratio; close linking of theory and practice; short duration of degree course; various specialisation areas; project “Mobile Digital Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry”; access to chemistry-relevant software and databases; close cooperation with the Young Chemists' Forum in career orientation; teacher training: strongly practice-oriented and experimental teaching in instructional methodoloy (experimental lecture; school experiments; practical exercises in schools; practical semester).
Special features regarding the international orientationSixth semester in the Bachelor's degree course suitable as a mobility window; support in carrying out final theses abroad (so far e.g. in Japan, Canada, USA, Czech Republic, France); support and advice on scholarship applications for stays abroad.

Support for foundersSupport for business start-ups is anchored at the university level through Potsdam-Transfer.
Other special featuresWithin the framework of chemistry degree course, key competencies are predominantly taught in a subject-integrative manner. The open STEM room, an initiative of the faculty, offers students the possibility to consult student tutors at fixed times and to get support for technical and interdisciplinary questions. The Institute of Chemistry supports the Young Chemists' Forum in organizing the series "Berufsbild Chemiker", in which chemists in professional life report on topics such as job search and career entry and everyday life.
