Overview

This 12-month course is ideal if you want to develop skills in a range of areas. It includes project work and an introduction to research level theory.

You’ll take taught classes for the first two semesters. In the third semester, you’ll work on an extended research project of your own.

Employers value this kind of experience. By the time you graduate, you will have proved you can work within a research group, organise your own research, complete a project and communicate your findings.

Programme structure

Core modules

All students will carry out two smaller laboratory projects prior to starting their main research project, to develop practical and scientific communication skill. They also undertake a Research and Presentation Skills module to further develop the higher level skills needed for research.

Optional modules

Lectured modules consist of a wide range of segments, spanning the breadth of chemistry, from which students are able to choose, to tailor their MSc to their strengths and interests.

Lecture segments in advanced topics selected from the extensive breadth of chemistry.
