Qualification type:
  • MChem (H), Full-time , Duration: 5 Years
Course Summary:
Environmental Chemistry is a subject for people who want to understand how the world works. The 5th year option to the BSc programme. Environmental Chemistry is one of the public and friendly faces of Chemistry with decisions based on research having enormous consequences for all of us. You may think that Environmental Chemistry is mostly about pollution, but really it is a subject for people who want to understand how the world works. Environmental Chemistry is concerned with the behaviour of chemicals (natural or man-made) in air, water, soils and sediments. It is an interdisciplinary field at the cross roads of important scientific subjects centred around advanced analytical chemistry. It requires knowledge of fundamental principles of many subject areas, including organic chemistry, soil science, biochemistry, toxicology and ecology. You will learn about the chemistry of organic and inorganic compounds, whether they are produced on purpose or generated as by-products of industrial processes, and about their reactivity and their interactions with living systems.
Assessment Methods:
Students are assessed by any combination of three assessment methods: coursework such as essays and reports completed throughout the course; practical assessments of the skills and competencies they learn on the course; and written examinations at the end of each course. The exact mix of these methods differs between subject areas, years of study and individual courses. Honours projects are typically assessed on the basis of a written dissertation.

The university is lovely, nice and calm with enthusiastic and passionate teachers who helped me out a lot. The Uni has loads of places to eat and hang out in the Hub. There’s no SU venue, but Aberdeen is buzzing - you just have to suck up the 20 minute bus ride to town from campus, and there are loads of students in the city so you’ll be making loads of friends quickly. Belmont Street is a guaranteed good night out. Also, has 0.12 fast food shops per 1,000 people, so you'll be healthier at least...
