Overview

The MChem offers more advanced work than the BSc and a strong element of research-based lab work. It provides a solid foundation in all major areas of chemistry, bringing you up to speed with the latest developments. The material covered here forms the basis of all of our courses.

In the first year, chemistry is your main subject: five lectures, six hours of laboratory instruction, and two hours of computer-aided learning per week, plus problem solving, tutorials and maths classes. You can also choose first-year modules in other departments. After the first year, all of your time is devoted to chemistry.

You can register for the BSc and transfer to MChem after your second year. To be eligible for the MChem, you’ll need to achieve a minimum standard in second-year course assessments.

Your final year involves advanced lecture courses, together with a laboratory research project tackling problems at the cutting edge of chemistry.
