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. 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. Making a choice between an MChem or BSc course can be difficult. If you’re unsure which course is right for you, don’t worry. You’ll be given advice before you begin studying and while you’re a student here. Our course structure is common to the BSc and MChem programmes, meaning you can transfer between the BSc and MChem in your first or second years. What’s more, by choosing to study abroad for a year, you’ll be exposed to teaching and research at an overseas university. The year will not only expand your academic approach to the subject, it will also be a valuable and rewarding experience both socially and culturally. About This Course Following the central structure of our MChem Chemistry, this course allows you to spend a year studying overseas. The year abroad will not only expose you to different research and teaching techniques, it will also give you the opportunity to be absorbed into university life within a different culture. You can choose from a broad range of partner universities in North America, Europe, Australasia, or Asia, offering similar programmes to our MChem. The Year Abroad will take place during your third year of studies, where you’ll study advanced level modules from the core subjects of physical, inorganic and organic chemistry, as well as elective modules to suit your interests, all under the guidance of the Year Abroad director or your academic adviser. A Master’s in Chemistry is the degree you should choose if you aspire to becoming a professional chemist. Our four-year Master’s course will give you the in-depth academic training you need to follow this career path. A key benefit to our MChem course is the emphasis we place on laboratory-based teaching, and the development of practical skills. 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 individual research project in your final year, back at UEA after your Year Abroad. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
