The principles and application of modern chemistry underpin many important UK industries. To meet the needs of employers we ensure that our students are given the opportunity to develop a wide range of transferable skills, including a logical and imaginative approach to problem solving and effective communication skills. The broad base of the Chemistry course allows students to take up careers in all areas of chemical science as well as non-chemistry careers. In Years 1 and 2 the main core areas of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry form the backbone of the course, with additional modules in spectroscopy, analytical chemistry, biological chemistry, and mathematics. Laboratory classes, workshops and seminars support these lectures. After Year 2, the development of core chemistry continues along with optional topics which include drug synthesis and action, advanced analytical research methodologies, physical and inorganic chemistry. In Year 4 you will study advanced research techniques that are complemented with further advanced modules in chemistry, and an extended research project equivalent to six modules where you will have the opportunity to work in the research laboratories. Our courses are orientated towards the practice of chemistry in the world outside the University. Master of Chemistry (MChem) undergraduate courses (4 year or 5 year sandwich) prepare students for research work in industry or a PhD research degree. Our 3 year (or 4 year sandwich) BSc equips you for employment in chemistry, scientific and other sectors.
