Chemistry with a Year in Industry at University of East Anglia UEA - UCAS

Course summary

Overview From the materials we make to the medicines we take; chemistry shapes our relationship with the world around us. Understanding how chemicals interact at a molecular level is not only fascinating, but also of critical importance in solving some of the greatest challenges facing humanity, such as climate change and eradicating disease. Following the central structure of our MChem Chemistry, this course allows you to spend your third year in an industrial chemical laboratory, gaining extensive experience in a research-led work environment. Your placement will typically last 10 to 12 months, and after an initial training period you’ll be fully integrated into a research team, contributing to the day-to-day requirements of the organisation. Our cutting-edge research in chemical sciences underpins our teaching – through lectures, workshops, small group tutorials and practical laboratory sessions – ensuring your learning is at the forefront of scientific thought. In the final two years of your degree, you’ll tailor your study to specialise in the areas that reflect your interests and career aspirations. You’ll also undertake an exciting individual research project. From the very beginning, you’ll be hands-on in our modern teaching laboratory. The laboratory is light, spacious, and fully equipped with a range of analytical and spectroscopic instrumentation. Later in your chemistry degree, you’ll have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment such as our X-Ray and NMR suites and imaging facilities. Our Master’s course will provide the in-depth academic training you’ll need to become a professional chemist, and the transferrable skills you’ll develop will be beneficial to a wide range of occupations, offering a breath of career opportunity.
