The four-year MSci course is ideal for those considering scientific careers that will make direct use of their subject-specific knowledge and skills. The first and second years of this course are identical to MSci Chemical Physics but year three provides the opportunity to spend time as a paid employee in the labs of a major company.
Our degrees incorporate units in chemistry, physics and mathematics. The first year gives you a comprehensive grounding in these subjects, while later years focus on atomic and molecular science and its interdisciplinary applications.
You will also focus on areas at the interface between chemistry and physics, so there is less organic and synthetic chemistry and more physical and non-synthetic inorganic chemistry. Similarly, there is very little nuclear and particle physics after your first year, but an emphasis on materials science and nanoscience.
As well as lectures and practical classes, small-group tutorials and workshops help develop your understanding of challenging and exciting concepts.
During your third year in industry you will become an expert scientist and develop important transferable skills. You will also study a small number of academic units through distance learning, making the transition between university and placement as smooth as possible. You will spend your final year at the University, studying a mixture of physics and chemistry units and undertaking a small research project.
Application deadline details:
Bristol’s great if you don’t really fancy concrete and a bustling metropolis – it’s a city uni with leafy streets, loads of independent shops and an intimate, community vibe. The city is kind of expensive, but if you budget properly you can stretch your loan out to have a great time here. There are loads of things to do in town, with a hectic nightlife and a great dubstep/drum and bass scene! The Uni is amazing too, with great facilities (the free bus onto campus is very helpful), and amazing tutors who were really inspiring and helpful.
