Course details
Course UCAS code: F183
Qualification type:
  • MChem, Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Chemists essentially perform one of two roles (and often a mixture of the two) in employment: chemists synthesise molecules and/or they make structural measurements. When something is made or formulated in the chemical industry - be it a perfume, a polymer, a drug molecule or a pot of paint – an analytical chemist will be required to provide information regarding the product’s chemical constituents. As such, a good analytical chemist is seldom out of work. Securing initial employment as an analytical chemist is greatly helped by having hands-on experience of using analytical instruments. The University of Bradford’s Centre for Chemical and Structural Analysis is based within Chemistry and Forensic Sciences, and is involved in commercial work as well as supporting research within the university. The equipment and expertise in the centre forms an integral part of our Analytical Chemistry degree, giving students the real-world experience that makes them stand out in the jobs market. During the first two years of study you will develop a sound understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of chemistry, with core content delivered across the traditional areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. To give you an intellectually fulfilling experience, our chemistry courses allow you to take 20 credits of elective modules in stages 1 and 2, with subjects offered from across the University’s teaching portfolio such as mathematics, engineering, economics and more. The third year we will introduce you to specialist content in medicinal, materials and analytical chemistry. You will also have the opportunity to study a specific subject by choosing to a greater depth during an extended dissertation. It is possible to exit after stage 3 with a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry. In the Master's year you will develop a deeper understanding of the application of chemistry to solving real-world problems. Master's-level training focuses on deploying training in real-world settings. Academic research experience involves students working on their own project as part of a research team alongside postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers at the University. **Professional accreditation** Students can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). **Rankings** Ranked 18th in the UK for Chemistry in the Guardian University League Tables 2019.

Year 1: Inorganic Chemistry 1 (core), Organic Chemistry 1 (core), Physical Chemistry 1 (core), Practical Chemistry 1 (core), Elective (option) Year 2: Inorganic Chemistry 2 (core), Organic Chemistry 2 (core), Physical Chemistry 2 (core), Practical Chemistry 2 (core), Elective (option) Year 3: Bio-organic and Bio-inorganic Chemistry (core), Introduction to Polymer and Colloid Science (core), Molecular Analysis (core), Organic Chemistry 3 (core), Practical Chemistry 3 (core), Stage 3 Research Project (core) Year 4: Choose from a wide range of option modules: Analytical Short Courses A (core), Fundamentals of Analytical Science (core), Materials Characterisation (core), Stage 4 Research Project (core)
Assessment Methods:
Students will demonstrate their achievement via written closed-book examinations using constructed (essays, short answers) and selected response (MCQ) questions and a variety of coursework assignments, including laboratory reports, oral presentations and dissertations.The development of learning outcomes will be through involvement in laboratory, small-group workshops, case-based work and projects (individual and small group). They will be assessed by critical appraisal, case analysis and critique, case presentations, laboratory reports and dissertations

The societies are really welcoming! The campus is compact and really fun! As for the city, new student pubs are sprouting up everywhere and there's loads of great films to see at the BIFF every year,. It may not be the most glam city in the country, but there’s plenty to see and do in Bradford and it’s great for students.

    I have found that being at a slightly smaller university means that I receive a better learning experience. I know all of my lecturers on a first name basis, and most of them know me. It is easy to be involved, both with the course and with sports and societies and I feel like the university has prepared me well for getting a good job in my field.

    The university of Bradford is a very diverse and vibrant place where everything is at one place and it is easy to get lost in all the activities that are available as there is just so much to do. The academics are very supportive and due to fairly small university everyone can get to know each other and there is always somebody who can support and help with any issues arising. Based on my experience I would recommend university of Bradford to anyone!
