Course summary

**Please note that the information provided relates to the current academic year and is subject to change without notice by Sheffield Hallam University. Please check the Sheffield Hallam University website for the latest information.** Course summary:

  • Combine taught modules with an extended research project in a professional lab.
  • Learn to obtain and interpret analytical information using a variety of products.
  • Apply experimental design techniques and use statistical methods for data evaluation.
  • Attain a solid grounding in laboratory quality management.
  • Operate industry-standard analytical lab instruments.
On this course, you'll advance your knowledge of analytical chemistry, and learn how it can be applied to different industries. You'll gain experience and understanding of key techniques and technologies, and discover how they can be used to solve complex biological problems. How you learn: All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive. You are taught through various learning activities designed to challenge and support as you progress through the course. The aim is to give a theoretical and practical knowledge of your subject. In the first semester you will follow taught modules that provide a fundamental knowledge of analytical chemistry, and the module Applied Laboratory Practice will introduce you to the practical and theoretical basis of research. Together these will give you a sound basis to carry out your Extended Research Project in semesters two and three. You learn through:
  • lectures and seminars
  • workshops and tutorials
  • laboratory classes
  • an extended research project
  • working in a professional laboratory
Applied learning - Live projects You'll undertake a research project aligned with the current research interests of an academic member of staff, within our professional laboratories of the Biomolecular Research Centre. You'll work within a real research group, fully supported throughout by your academic supervisor. The project will include a critical review of the literature relevant to your research project, the development of a project proposal, the development of research methods and the analysis, presentation and interpretation of experimental data. Since the project extends over two semesters, it allows you to have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the project and to have the time to collect meaningful data, thus enabling an authentic research scientist experience.
