The MChem Degree

The BSc Honours Degree

We also offer a BSc Designated degree in Chemistry after three years of study.

Our teaching in the first two years aims to give a balanced treatment of all the main branches of the subject.

In the third and fourth years we develop a selection of topics in more depth and include courses where students may look at the application of fundamental science to understanding issues ranging from biomaterials to environmental remediation and nanotechnology.

Level 4 includes a research project where students have the opportunity to interact with active research groups and for students opting for the MChem degree, this offers a 5 months placement in an overseas research laboratory. Options enable students to tailor their programmes to suit their own aptitudes and interests.

Sponsored summer studentships are available for students at level 3 and 4 which again, allow an opportunity to gain research experience.
