Chemistry (International) - Durham University

This is a four year MChem degree accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. You will spend the first three years developing an understanding of a broad range of modern chemistry covering organic and inorganic synthesis, physical characterisation methods, and chemistry at the interfaces with biosciences, engineering and physics. You will also gain a broad range of practical skills in synthesis, physical measurement and data analysis. In your final year you will carry out an individual research project at one of our overseas partner universities addressing a novel area of contemporary chemistry, whilst following some chemistry at the research forefront. Throughout the degree you will develop your chemical understanding, problem-solving, independence and practical skills. Graduates of this course are well-prepared for higher level study, work in the chemicals sector, and roles requiring problem-solving and numeracy skills. **Year 1** You will study 120 credits per academic year. In the first year there are 80 credits of chemistry modules that teach you the basics of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, consolidating and building on pre-university courses. Mathematical and Experimental Tools Required in Chemistry (METRiC) contains courses that develop mathematical and physical concepts as tools for chemistry, and also some background biology and physics. Practical Chemistry is introduced in two cross-disciplinary modules, concluding in a short project. For this degree you are expected to study an appropriate language module in first year. Compulsory modules: Core Chemistry 1 Practical Chemistry 1A Mathematical and Experimental Tools Required in Chemistry Introduction to Materials Chemistry Practical Chemistry 1B An appropriate language module Optional modules; you will take 20 credits of modules from those offered by other departments in science and the other faculties. Modules have previously included: Mathematics Biology and languages are popular We offer an elective Chemistry module ‘Molecules in Action’. **Year 2** You will study compulsory modules to the value of 100 credits. These extend your knowledge of inorganic, organic, physical and theoretical chemistry from the first-year introduction, and develop further practical skills. There is also an option to take a language module. Your final second-year module provides you with an opportunity to specialise or to continue study with a timetable-compatible module of another subject. You will study one 20-credit module. **Year 3** There are two compulsory modules, and the remaining modules allow you to study all areas of the subject or to specialise. There is also an option to take a language module in Year 3 if not taken in Year 2. These 20-credit modules provide you with the opportunity to further develop your interest in specialised areas of the subject. **Year 4** **Chemistry MChem programmes** The final choice of where to carry out your Research Project may be delayed until your third year, and you will perform your project work overseas. **MChem with overseas project** You carry out a Research Project at a university in another country of the EU through the SOCRATES/ERASMUS exchange programme, and also follow some taught material by distance learning. The Department currently has exchanges with universities in Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain. Exchanges with other countries occasionally become available. We review course structures and core content (in light of e.g. external and student feedback) every year, and will publish finalised core requirements for 2020 entry from September 2019.
