Develop your knowledge and skills, enjoy our state-of-the-art facilities and take your first step towards becoming a professional scientist on this MChem Chemistry programme. This MChem Chemistry degree provides excellent training if you are considering a career as a professional chemist in industry, research or higher education. In your first two years you will gain a thorough grounding in the core areas of chemistry. As you progress, you will choose from a range of specialist options on topics such as polymers, organic synthesis, catalysis and biomolecular modelling. If you would like to spend a year gaining work experience, our MChem with a Year in Industry/Research course gives you the opportunity to spend 12 months working in the chemical or pharmaceutical industry, or at one of our partner universities abroad. In your third and final years of this course you can choose from a range of advanced options allowing you to specialise in topics such as atmospheric chemistry, polymers and advanced materials, contemporary organic synthesis, catalysis, industrial chemistry, biomolecular modelling and many more. You will also take an advanced laboratory class to learn specialist techniques preparing you for your extended project in the final year. Much of your final year is dedicated to your own research project; it's an opportunity to think independently, develop your own ideas and gain first-hand experience in a stimulating research environment. This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Placement We have a dedicated placements officer who is able to advise on career options, CVs and letters of application, as well as help you find a placement. We have previously sent students to companies such as Coty (Rimmel), Dow Corning and GSK. Students have also been placed at foreign research institutions such as the University of Zaragoza, Aarhus University, the University of South Australia and NASA.
We will be updating this page with module information over the coming weeks.
