  • Msci (Hon), Sandwich , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
**Our Pharmaceutical Chemistry MSci degree gives you the chance to explore all the fundamentals of organic chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology while developing a specialism in pharmaceutics. Where this course differs from the Pharmaceutical Chemistry BSc(Hons) degree is that the third year of the MSci is a compulsory UK placement year in industry, a government agency or academic research group. We’ll support you to find a place that’s right for you and wherever you choose to go, you’ll complete academic assignments alongside your work experience.** From day one you’ll be building up your knowledge and getting to practise the skills that are sought after by a wide range of industries. Throughout the course you’ll get to grips with the subject areas through lectures, tutorials, focused seminars and hands-on practicals in modern chemical sciences labs. Guided by teaching staff who are all educated to doctoral level in their respective areas of expertise, you’ll be able to develop your logical reasoning skills and establish an imaginative approach to solving problems. All of these aspects of the course are designed to help build your confidence in applying your knowledge and help you enter the world of work when you graduate.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!

    Overall, the university has few faults. There are always friendly faces on and around campus, there are always events and things going on that cater to all interests. The teaching quality is very very high, and lectures are always made to be engaging.

    This is a great university. There is a lot of facilities, including the library, cafes/shops and a gym. The town is really easy to get around and everything is close together.
