MChem Chemistry with a Year Abroad aims to give you a detailed understanding of the knowledge and skills required to advance into a successful chemistry career, as well as a year working at a research laboratory abroad. This flexible four-year course incorporates a major research project worth 60 credits in the final year, and a year spent working overseas at a research laboratory of another university or institution. During your time abroad in year three, you will continue with academic work and undertake an extended research project as part of a research group at the host institution. The entire year will be assessed as part of your degree. Placements are offered globally, at partner institutions in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australasia. 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 and gain experience living and working overseas, you can acquire all the attributes needed to be a self-sufficient working chemist.
