The EACH programme deals with a wide variety of topics and provides excellent opportunities for the students. In the first year, not only analytical techniques are studied in theory and in practice, but also some other important aspects of analytical chemistry, such as uncertainty and statistical evaluation. One of the great experiences I had within the EACH programme was in the Measurement Science in Chemistry Summer School, where we were able to cover the aforementioned topics in two weeks and make friends from different parts of the world… Read more.

Larissa Silva Maciel (EACH graduate, intake 2018)


Joining the EACH programme is one of the best choices I made. The programme is well-designed and well-organised, offering a unique way of living and studying in different countries. Especially at UT, the courses given by lecturers and professors are at an extremely-high level, which provide the students with a solid academic background for further researches or professional activities. The programme director (Ivo Leito) and administrative coordinator (Anu Teearu-Ojakäär) always take good care of all the students, providing guidance and help rapidly when needed. I am very grateful for having the opportunity to have joined this EACH family.

I did not have a chance to say thank you to EACH program before, but it definitely was a life-changing experience to me. It opened my eyes to a wider horizon of analytical chemistry, which is not only about analytical methods and their instrumentation, there is also chemometrics, metrology and many more. Those knowledges allowed me to be competitive in the field and capable to pursue further success.
In the second year of EACH program in France, I have had the chance to do an internship of 6 months with Prof. J. Randon, on the subject of development of high pressure gas chromatography. With the interest in the continuation and the trust from the professor, I have passed the contest from the doctoral school of Univeristy Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and finally won an entrance ticket to a challenging PhD program.

Huian Liu (EACH graduate, intake 2015)


EACH was an amazing experience for me professionally and personally. I appreciate and very much satisfy with the program from both Tartu and Lyon. I always know that they are useful one way or another way, but I came to experience how well EACH has prepared me for my future when I started applying for jobs and PhDs. Most of the requirements from company or research group were provided during the program. Even with the techniques that I didn’t have an opportunity to get hands on experience, I could prove how much I am familiar with them and how strong my analytical background is thanks to EACH. Looking back, I am very glad and grateful for joining EACH.

Nhung Đặng Thị Hồng (EACH grauate, intake 2018)


During two years of EACH, I have been introduced to amazing people who made me a better person in both professional and personal ways. This programme is well-organized and improving each year. Study materials are of high quality, and correspond to modern topics of science.

Dariya Tukhmetova (EACH graduate, intake 2018)


After finishing my first year in EACH, I was surprised by the huge amount of knowledge and practical skills I have acquired. Courses are elaborately designed and we had hands-on experience in diverse analytical techniques in our practical labs. Adding to that the multicultural environment and living in Tartu, I would say that the experience has been invaluable and I am proud to be part of EACH.

Marvy Girgis (EACH student, intake 2018)


No words would be able to express my gratitude for being part of the EACH program. This experience has been amazing for I had immense expansion on the things that I thought I knew before, encountered new information that I never heard of, and it holistically improved my personality and attitude towards other people, across race and culture since I became an international student. The program did not only taught me good analytical laboratory techniques, as it also enhanced my scope in chemical measurements and instruments, but it also gave out multiple opportunities and chances in life that I had never experienced before I stepped in into this program. In the tutelage of the program as a first-year student, I was able to push my capabilities to become the best version of myself that I could not ever imagine. So with that alone, plus all the guidance, technical skills, theory, and life lessons that I obtained, I really am thankful. I wish that more young, bright and deserving minds can experience all of these too!

Mark Dennis Retrato (EACH student, intake 2018)


Every moment of these two years, every breath I took in Tartu and Uppsala, every exam, every presentation and group work taught me something extraordinary. It taught me patience, and how to approach my craft. It taught me about collaboration, experimentation, risk, friendship, and empathy. There were the days where I couldn’t stop laughing, and nights when I wished I could have been sleeping in bed, instead of studying and writing the reports, but somehow, we made it through and we had fun even then. And if I got the chance to go back in time I would, with no doubts, choose the EACH programme again.

Snežana Đorđević (EACH graduate, intake 2016)


I was one of the students in the 2015/16 intake. After the program I have immediately found a project to work on. I was in Athens from October 2017, studying Coatings deposition through electrochemical means and their properties. After one year, I have decided to change, hence in October 2018, I have started PhD studies in Lyon, in the company IFP energies novelles. AT IFPEN I am working on Comprehensive Two Dimensional Gas Chromatography with VUV and FID detection for the analysis of petroleum products. The project is very exhilarating and I feel like the participation in EACH has very much prepared me to think as a researcher. I found the EACH diploma to be very valued by the potential employers, with the accent on international experience that everyone appreciates very much. I did not have any trouble to find a project after EACH, if anything it was more difficult to make a choice between several opportunities. I am infinitely grateful for the opportunity to participate in EACH, and as I always say for sure it has changed my life. I hope you will be able to continue the project in many years to come.

Aleksandra Lelevic (EACH graduate, intake 2015)


I joined EACH program to receive an effective education and at the same time saw this an opportunity to enhance my exposure in an international environment. EACH program provided a terrific option for me to excel in some of the analytical techniques through its curriculum of rigorous regular laboratory experiments. On the other hand, this Master’s program was flexible in allowing me to enjoy my afterwork life and experience new culture from all over the world. I was very pleased with my experience, and I am grateful that a program like EACH exists to meet the needs of such a wide array of students.

Rabin Neupane (EACH graduate, intake 2015)


When I came to the EACH programme in september I was really surprised when I found out that the organization of the studies is performed on an extremely high level – organizers (especially Ivo Leito and Ulle Tensing) take care of students and do every single possible thing to help internatonal students in their new life abroad. Subjects that are taught here are useful and interesting and – what is more important meet my expectations from the programme.

Anton Roshchin (EACH graduate, intake 2016)


Analytical chemistry is the central piece today in chemistry. This is demonstrated in the article Education and careers of European analytical chemists (DOI 10.1007/s00216-014-8191-z) where analytical chemistry is predominant in 17 % of chemists’ jobs (in Europe). Therefore, the EACH program is the suitable place to be to get what is required for diverse job markets. Here we are not only talking about industry, even consultancy organisations are relying on analytical chemists. Health, environmental, etc decisions are made today following the words of the latter. That’s just a glance to see the power of the tool (analytical chemistry) that we have and the means (EACH, not Gryffindor) to reach it.

Olivier Nonga (EACH graduate, intake 2015)


The Excellence in Analytical Chemistry programme exceeded all my expectations in terms of acquired knowledge and skills. It is a unique programme in which highly qualified academic and administrative staff is fully dedicated to students in order make their experience as enjoyable and as rich as possible.

Slim Blidi (EACH graduate, intake 2016)


I chose TBD because it had a lot of analytical techniques that I could experience at the same time. The most inspiring part was all the TBD employees welcomed me as a member of the team and truly expected me to make a contribution from the first day. Everyone I met, from company manager to colleagues working together, helped me grow, both as an employee and a person. I’ve really enjoyed the learning atmosphere at TBD and the wonderful people I’ve worked alongside.

Santosh Raman Acharya (EACH graduate, intake 2015) about his experience with Training placement at TBD Biodiscovery


Thank you a lot for this amazing program!
