Choosing to study Chemistry can open the door to an exciting range of career options. From practical scientist through research technologist to academic specialist, all can be reached, in part, through this contemporary, multi-disciplinary degree programme. Our innovative skills-based curriculum will give you the tools to succeed in your degree and our award-winning careers service will assist you in making choices for your future. Our courses will equip you with an armoury of skills to take into the world of work, including the ability to analyse problems, to work collaboratively as part of a team, and to develop laboratory, numeracy and communication skills. You will also gain an appreciation for a subject which links so many scientific disciplines through applications and examples as well as practical work and learning through research. In lectures, the topics and examples you discuss will be taken from the latest research, much of which is carried out right here by the School's academics. Undertaking a placement in industry will allow you to develop real-world expertise and earn a salary whilst completing the third year of your degree. The transferable skills that you gain will prove invaluable in helping to shape your future career. In recent years companies our students have undertaken placements with include GlaxoSmithKline, Reckitt Benckiser, AstraZeneca, Roche, AzkoNobel, Lucozade Ribena Suntory and Cancer Research UK. **Special Features** - We take good care of our students and have several tutors to oversee the process. The Director of Undergraduate Studies is in overall charge and you will have Academic Tutors in all branches of the subject, a Programme Director for the F101 course, and a Personal Tutor. - MChem Chemistry with Industrial Chemistry is a highly flexible degree involving courses from the School of Chemistry and a range of outside Schools. For full details of all the courses see below. - The third year is spent gaining valuable paid experience in the chemical industry. An Academic Tutor will keep in contact throughout the year and visit you at your placement. You will undertake core chemistry modules by distance learning over the web, for which tutorial support is provided. Assessment will also involve reports marked by the Academic Tutor and the industrial supervisor. - We will charge less than the standard half fee for students taking up a year in industry and offer to waive or significantly discount this fee for students from less well-off backgrounds. Further information about the University's extensive programme of scholarships and bursaries can be found at www.manchester.ac.uk/undergraduate/funding - We are also proud of our innovative PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) scheme. The PASS scheme provides additional support in the area of the current week's tutorial. It is entirely voluntary and third and fourth year students help first years to tackle problems defined by the content of the current tutorial. The emphasis is on showing students how to think about the problems, how to develop problem-solving skills and how to get the most from the educational resources available.
