Overview

You should consider this programme if you are seeking a professional career in chemistry. The programme covers the major areas of chemistry in the first three years. In the final year, you will have the opportunity to conduct independent research in one or more advanced areas, and develop specialist knowledge. You can also take a sandwich year in employment after Year 2.

On completing the MChem you will be able to:

Analyse chemical problems
Show a high degree of autonomy in your studies
Operate a range of analytical instruments
Conduct independent research
Work in a chemistry laboratory safely with a minimum of direct supervision.
You will also be an effective communicator both orally and in writing and have good problem-solving and team-working skills.

The Department of Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Environmental Sciences, part of the Faculty of Engineering and Science, offers a diverse range of programmes underpinned by excellent teaching and world-class
research.

Our innovative degrees employ the very latest learning strategies and assessment techniques. They are designed to produce fully qualified graduates with all the skills necessary to secure employment. Each of our programmes has been developed in collaboration with industry and, where appropriate, is accredited by the
