Overview From the materials we make to the medicines we take, chemistry shapes our relationship with the world around us. So understanding how chemicals interact at a molecular level is not only fascinating, but also of critical importance. Our Master’s course will provide the academic training you need to become a professional chemist. Our cutting-edge research in chemical sciences underpins our teaching – through lectures, workshops, small group tutorials and practicals – 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. And, because of the common structure of our courses, you can transfer between the MChem and BSc in your first or second years. About This Course This is the chemistry degree you should choose if you aspire to becoming a professional chemist. Our four-year integrated Master’s course will give you the in-depth academic training you need to follow your chosen career path. A key benefit to our MChem course is the emphasis we place on laboratory-based teaching, and the development of practical skills. Your lab work will include synthesis of new compounds, characterisation of these compounds by spectroscopic methods, and the study of their individual properties. 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.

Year 1 will develop your scientific skills, studying topics in Bonding, Structure and Periodicity, Carbon-based Compounds, Energetics and Spectroscopy to give you a solid basis on which you will build the rest of your degree. Alongside lectures and tutorials there is an emphasis on practical work, carried out across the well-equipped teaching laboratory, the instrumentation lab and the IT suite. In Year 2 you will develop your knowledge of the core areas of chemistry, such as Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry, while honing your practical skills and allowing you to choose optional modules suited to your developing strengths and interests. In Year 3 you will be able to choose further optional modules and take an advanced practical course, giving you experience of a range of research laboratories. Year 4 involves an extended research project, where you will work with one of the School’s renowned research groups, as well as studying Master’s level modules in chemistry.
