Overview

The MChem Chemistry degree single and combined Honours programmes aim to enhance your sense of enthusiasm for chemistry and to involve you in an intellectually stimulating experience of learning in a supportive environment. You will gain extensive in-depth knowledge and understanding of chemistry and related subjects, as well as a comprehensive training in practical chemistry and an appreciation of the importance of the discipline in different contexts. The university will provide a sound basis for a successful career as a professional chemist and provide opportunities for you to develop a range of transferable skills for both chemical and non-chemical careers.

You will also have the opportunity to work on an original project during a six month work placement in an industrial or academic research laboratory to equip you for a successful career as a professional chemist and enable you to fulfil the requirements of the Royal Society of Chemistry for the CChem qualification.

Programme structure

Each academic year of this integrated MChem Chemistry degree is identified as a level: the first year is Level 1 (often called fundamental); the second year is Level 2 (intermediate); the third year is Level 3 (advanced); and the fourth year is Level 6 (Masters). To complete a degree you are required to undertake a specified number of courses (otherwise called units) in each of these levels.

Career opportunities

For an average graduating class, it is expected that more than 95 per cent will be in full-time employment or undertaking further study six months after graduation.

Chemistry degrees are in third place behind only Medicine and Dentistry as the degree with the highest financial return over the term of a graduate’s career.

There are the obvious research and teaching opportunities and the options to branch out into other fields such as medicine, pharmaceuticals, finance, law and science journalism.

A degree in chemistry gives you extra tools to take on the many varied challenges which your career and life present.
