This programme is targeted at our very best students, combining a complete MChem programme with a year of paid industrial research experience – an ideal combination if you wish to become a professional chemist and pursue a high-level research career in Chemistry after graduation. The benefits of a one-year industrial placement are immense. You not only gain in terms of your practical and intellectual skills, but return with a more objective attitude towards work for your final year. It is no accident that final degree performances are enhanced by a year in industry. In today’s competitive job market, prior industrial experience is highly sought-after by employers. All our programmes have a common Chemistry core which provides a good measure of flexibility and choice for you during the first two years. These are identical to the first two years of the MChem Chemistry (F102) programme. Since students enter the Department with a wide range of experience in Mathematics (which is essential for studying chemistry to a high level) we provide a flexible three-tiered Maths for Chemistry course allowing you to develop your skills at your own pace.
