Course details
Course UCAS code: F102
Qualification type:
  • MChem (H), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
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 MChem Chemistry course allows you 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. Master of Chemistry (MChem) undergraduate courses (4 year or 5 year sandwich) prepare students for research work in industry or a PhD research degree. A full list of indicative modules is available on the course page of our website.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
Assessment Methods:
You are assessed by both examination and coursework. Exams run at the end of semester 1 (January) and semester 2 (June). MChem students must obtain an average of 55% or above in Years 2 and 3 to progress to the next year of the course. Your MChem degree classification will be determined by the weighted average of your marks obtained in years 2, 3 and 4 in the ratio 20:40:40.
Application deadline details:
