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 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 BSc and MChem in your first or second years. About This Course Our three-year chemistry degree programme will give you a solid grounding in all aspects of chemistry. In your first two years, you’ll gain advanced knowledge of chemistry and develop your practical laboratory skills. Then in your final year, you’ll tailor your study to specialise in the areas that reflect your interests and career aspirations, and you’ll undertake an independent research project. If you possess an inherent curiosity about the world around you and you’re fascinated by the way chemicals interact, this course is an ideal choice. It will give you a real understanding of chemistry’s impact on every aspect of our lives, from our health and wellbeing to our economy. And it will give you the opportunity to use your imagination to take your thinking to extremes, and then apply it. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.

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 you will carry out a research project working with one of the School’s renowned research groups.
