The MChem Chemistry course aims to give you a detailed understanding of the knowledge and skills required to advance into a successful chemistry career. This four-year degree incorporates a major research project worth 60 credits in the final year. You will spend year three in Cardiff, but have the opportunity to transfer to the MChem Chemistry with a Year in Industry or MChem Chemistry with a Year Abroad courses if you wish to spend year three in an industrial laboratory, or in a university research laboratory overseas. A solid grounding across the whole subject of chemistry will be delivered, before you focus in depth on your specific areas of interest. This culminates in a major research project, working alongside subject experts within the School. With more emphasis on analysis, synthesis and problem solving than BSc degrees, as well as significant opportunities to develop transferrable professional skills, you can acquire all the attributes needed to be a self-sufficient working chemist. Distinctive features •This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry •MChem graduates are eligible for full membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC), and may apply for the title of Chartered Chemist (CChem) after further experience in a relevant job •students who are interested in a placement abroad or in industry may request a transfer to the MChem with a Year in Industry, or MChem with a Year Abroad •availability of opportunities to undertake summer research projects in Cardiff under academic staff supervision.
