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 two full research projects, one in the university’s research laboratories and another that might be with an external industrial or academic organisation. This experience will 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

At Southampton they believe employability is about more than just getting a job. Their aim is to help their students gain the necessary experience for a future career, along with the skills to identify opportunities and make the most of them.

A Chemistry degree is third only behind Medicine and Dentistry as the qualification with the highest financial return over the term of the graduate’s career but the university realises that a successful career is more than just a measure of income. They believe you will build your confidence and broaden your options by meeting employers.

As the holder of a degree in chemistry with medicinal sciences from the University of Southampton your career path will be limited only by the level of your commitment and your own ambition.
