Content

You'll take foundation classes in chemistry, mathematics, and physics or biology at introductory or advanced level. Classes in forensic science, drug discovery and chemical engineering are available depending on your degree choice.

Practical chemistry laboratory sessions help you to master the basic preparative and analytical skills.

In later years, classes will include fundamental inorganic, organic, biological and physical chemistry.

In Year 4, MChem students undertake a paid 12-month industrial placement. Research and Knowledge Exchange placements are also available. For BSc (Honours) students Year 4 is the final year.

In the final year, you’ll specialise in the areas and applications that interest you most and undertake a research project.
