Overview Get ready to be at the forefront of organic chemistry today. Underpinning research and development in many areas of the chemical industry, organic chemistry couldn’t be more important. In fact, it’s the central discipline that drives innovation across many diverse areas of the science and technology industry – from forensics to food, pharmaceuticals to energy. You’re already a chemist, but you know that advanced level training is becoming increasingly important in your field. As well as strengthening your broader chemistry knowledge, you’re excited about specialising in this fascinating area – studying subjects such as stereochemistry, medicinal chemistry, organometallics and spectroscopy. This is exactly the kind of high-level training that’s so sought after by employers in the chemical industry, as well as top academic institutions working on fundamental research. So this course will be the next step on your journey towards a fulfilling and fascinating scientific career. About This Course Building on your undergraduate training in chemistry, this MSc allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, whilst developing advanced knowledge in aspects of organic chemistry. Whether you’re a chemistry graduate who wants to specialise, or you have a degree in combined science with a chemistry component, this course is designed to take your knowledge to the next level. You can expect to reach the frontiers of knowledge in key aspects of your subject, including organic reaction mechanisms, spectroscopy, and synthetic strategy. You’ll learn through advanced lectures, seminars and laboratory classes – which are specifically tailored to the needs of the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, speciality and fine organic chemicals industries. Importantly, you’ll also complete an in-depth laboratory research project, which allows you to work closely with our pioneering, award-winning academics. Through this you’ll showcase all your skills and learning – as well as bringing new original thought and research to bear on your topic. You’ll graduate with high level specialised skills and knowledge in organic chemistry, ready to embark on a career in the industry or progression to PhD level study.

Applicants require a good 1st degree in chemistry or a related joint discipline. All applicants who are not a British national and/or whose 1st language is not English will need to demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency. This is equivalent to an IELTS 6.5 overall, with a minimum of 5.5 in all 4 components, although we do accept many other types of qualifications or tests. In accordance with the UK Border Agencies Tier 4 visa guidelines, we will also waive the English language requirement for applicants who meet the defined nationality test or who have completed a degree level course in 1 of the listed countries.
