Chemistry with a Year Abroad

Following the central structure of our MChem Chemistry, this course allows you to spend a year studying overseas. The year abroad will not only expose you to different research and teaching techniques, but will also give you the opportunity to be absorbed into university life within a different culture. You can choose from a broad range of partner universities in North America, Europe, Australasia, or Asia, where you’ll study advanced level modules from the core subjects of Physical, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, as well as elective modules to suit your interests, all under the guidance of the Year Abroad director or your academic advisor. A Master’s in Chemistry is the degree you should choose if you aspire to becoming a professional chemist. Accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, our four-year Master’s course will give you the in-depth academic training you need to follow this career path. A key benefit to our MChem course is the emphasis we place on laboratory-based teaching, and the development of practical skills. Your lab work will include synthesis of new compounds, characterisation of these compounds by spectroscopic methods, and the study of their individual properties. In the final two years of your degree, you’ll tailor your study to specialise in the areas that reflect your interests and career aspirations. You’ll also undertake an individual research project. **Course Structure** Our Master’s in Chemistry programme will develop your existing knowledge and give you a detailed understanding of chemistry across a broad range of specialisms. Due to the subject’s strong practical component, we place great emphasis on laboratory skill training. This could take the form of the synthesis of new compounds, the characterisation of these compounds by spectroscopic methods, or the study of their properties. Throughout your four years, our modules will help you develop transferable skills in the areas of communication, team working and problem solving. Such skills are vital to professional scientists and prized by employers. **Year 1** In your first year of study you’ll develop your scientific skills, building upon your existing knowledge. You’ll also study topics such as mathematics and physics, which will prove particularly beneficial if you have not taken A-levels in these subjects. In year one we also place a distinct emphasis on practical work, encouraging you to develop important analytical and problem solving skills that will prove invaluable throughout your degree. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll study subjects relating to organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, developing your knowledge in these core areas and honing your practical skills. You will also select optional modules. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third year studying at an overseas university. You will select a preference for placement in North America, Australasia, or Asia, and subject to availability you’ll be offered a place at one of our partner universities. Here you’ll study advanced level modules in physical, inorganic and organic chemistry, and choose elective modules to suit your interests, all under the guidance of the Year Abroad director or your academic advisor. **Year 4** In your final year you’ll study advanced topics in chemistry and undertake an extended research project, which could be either computational or laboratory-based. You’ll work in a research group alongside postgraduate students and doctoral researchers, which will be both an enjoyable and stimulating experience that will help you further develop your research skills. What’s more, projects frequently lead to publication in a scientific journal. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
