What our students say?

EACH programme turned my life upside down. I came here expecting only to study analytical chemistry but ended up seeing so much more. From metrology to physics, satellites to NIR probes, European geopolitics to French language and culture. This course really has it all. I am very thankful and honored to be part of EACH, especially at the UCBL track. In the end, we graduate with two highly regarded diplomas and experiences to remember for many years to come.

Meeting many EACH mates, from the most diverse backgrounds, was so amazing that saying farewell was an arduous task. For all the students considering joining the programme, please do try because it is so much more than a master’s degree that it is hard to explain. Thanks to Prof. Ivo for his dedication to continue this excellent (!!!) programme.

Victor Xavier (EACH graduate 2023)

The EACH program was nothing short of a transformative journey for me, career-wise. Its rigorous curriculum that covers intensive coursework (e.g., metrology, chemometrics, etc.) reinforced by hands-on laboratory training and internship assignments in premier research institutions (i.e. BIOR, IFPEN), have sharpened my analytical chemistry skills. I greatly value the program’s focus on practical aspects of diverse analytical techniques, which are crucial for the next phase of my career. Moreover, the excellent mentorship and exemplary administrative support especially in Tartu, largely provided a challenging but enriching learning environment.

Beyond the classroom’s walls, side perks also came with ease – including travel & leisure possibilities, expanding social spheres, and ultimately immersing in diverse cultures (connecting with people from around the globe, forging meaningful friendships in the process). Undoubtedly, pursuing EACH was one of the best life decisions I’ve made, putting into the drain all the doubts and fears I initially felt. Looking back, I am immensely grateful for every lesson (along with the truckload of memories) this program has afforded me thus far.

Oliver Salangad (EACH graduate 2023)

There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are to be part of this programme. So here is “thank you” in all of our different languages!



Students of EACH intake 2020-2022

A tapestry of recollections has been bound into the fabric of my life in Chemicum. Many treasured memories stand out as vivid strands of nostalgia, including but not limited to the lovely Christmas tree building, the insightful lectures, the anxious but fulfilling presentations and free times with colleagues. The construction of Christmas trees was a collaborative design that was more than just decorating a tree. As I took a step back to survey our collective creation, which was adorned with ornaments made of dreams and memories, I experienced the sense of togetherness that the season can provide.

Master’s Seminars and presentations were eagerly anticipated occasions that brought us together outside classes and practical sessions. I can still clearly remember the excitement leading up to my first presentation in Room 1020. Read more …

Onyeka Francis Offor (EACH 2022 intake)

I found the time completely enriching academically and personally. The lectures, seminars and hands-on experience in the lab were insightful, practical and challenging. The halls’ lectures were clean and comfortable. All the people inside the building are really helpful and would give you all the guidance you might need. This is also true in other buildings of the university.

Mauricio Andrés Huertas Beltrán (EACH 2022 intake)

Aside from the lecture halls and the teaching laboratories, the cafeteria in Chemicum was the place where we got to know each other better as we bonded over food. After classes and while waiting in between classes, my classmates and I would have lunch together in the cafeteria. Some of us brought home-cooked meals while some bought from the cafeteria. We got a taste of everything as we tried out each other’s meals. In the cafeteria, we shared not just food but also laughter, stories, and flavors of our personalities. Read more …

EACH, as its name can clearly suggest, is an international program funded in terms of Excellence and high quality. Once immersed in it, you will always feel proud of it. Nevertheless, not everything can be rosy.

First of all, as with any other international program, it requires you to be strong enough to leave your comfort zone behind; that is why, more than once, you can find yourself asking: “Am I good enough?” (Kind of a spoiler I can tell you that the answer is “yes, you are” and during these years you will find people that will make of you even a better version). Read more …

Dennisse Avella (EACH 2023 graduate, furthest to the left on the picture)

Two years of study under the EACH program boosted not only my professional knowledge but also strengthened my ability to critical judging. The study at UT set me a good foundation for the challenges that I faced at UCBL. The most valuable thing EACH program provided was the opportunity for doing an internship to better understand the properties of an adsorbent, gamma-alumina, in an industry in France which further gave me advantages over the other competitors in the job-seeking process. With this internship experience and the knowledge gained from EACH, I successfully secured my future position as an R&D engineer at a world-leading passive device before graduation. Now, I wish to use this opportunity to thank everyone I met who helped me through the journey.

Yu-Yen Ting (EACH graduate 2022)

In 2020, I did not know anything about Erasmus Mundus programs, until one friend told me about them. The first thing I did was to search the catalog hoping to find something related to analytical chemistry, I was so excited when I read about the EACH program as it was what I was looking for. Now that I am here I can say I am very fortunate to be part of EACH and that I am very happy to accomplish one of my dreams. This first semester of the master’s program has been full of learning and unique experiences.

The University of Tartu has highly qualified professors in the area of analytical chemistry. And not only are they excellent academics, but they are also very kind people willing to support and guide you along the way. This is why I am proud to say that The University of Tartu not only welcomed me with open arms, but also provided me with all the necessary tools to develop myself academically, physically, and mentally. In addition, this program has given me the opportunity to meet incredible people, with whom this experience has been even better. Special thanks to Ivo Leito and Anu Teearu, who are always attentive to our concerns and willing to help us as much as possible. I am eager to continue learning at both universities, which will help me to improve my knowledge, become a great chemistry professional and be able to fulfill my dreams and goals.

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.

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.
