Course content

Analytical chemistry underpins many important commercial enterprises from jet engine development to food production, and is also applied to many other academic disciplines such as Earth sciences, medicine, archaeology, pharmacy and forensics. This MSc seeks to train the next generation of analytical scientists in state-of-the-art methods and skills to tackle the challenges of this broad range of applications.

About this degree

This programme is designed to provide comprehensive training in analytical chemistry and its implementation. A thorough understanding of error analysis, data processing and data presentation will be at the foundation of this programme.

The programme will contain minimum formal instruction, but emphasise self-learning and originality of thought. Students will develop and demonstrate self-direction and originality, and the independence required for continuing professional development.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of four core modules (60 credits), two modules focused on developing transferable skills (30 credits), a literature project (30 credits) and a research project (60 credits).

Core modules

Students take the following core modules (120 credits) and submit a research dissertation (60 credits).

  • Analytical Strategies I
  • Data Analysis and Theory in Analytical Chemistry
  • Practical Aspects of Analytical Chemistry
  • Analytical Strategies II
  • Transferable Skills for Chemists
  • Researcher Professional Development
  • Literature Project for Applied Analytical Chemistry

Dissertation/report

All students undertake a substantial research project selected from a range (60 credits).

Teaching and learning

This degree emphasises self-learning and is delivered through individual and team-based tasks. The programme will focus on developing students’ knowledge of analytical methodology, philosophy and design.

Assessment is by presentations, vivas, and problem-solving coursework. There are no written exams for this programme.

Further information on modules and degree structure is available on the department website:Applied Analytical Chemistry MSc

Careers

Graduates will be equipped for varied employment in industry and the public sector: analytical science techniques have a very broad range of applications in many sectors, ranging from forensics to global climate change and medicine to the automotive industry.

Employability

This MSc seeks to train the next generation of analytical scientists in state-of-the-art methods and skills to tackle the challenges of a broad range of applications. Students are connected to industry partners through our teaching delivery (several of our guest speakers are from other universities and industry) and project participation, and receive important professional skills in two dedicated research and transferable skills modules.

Why study this degree at UCL?

Using a non-traditional approach this programme will prioritise independent learning and research. Students also participate in peer-review assessment of posters and talks. Peer assessment is an important transferable skill that is used widely in industrial and academic environments.

Emphasis will be on designing appropriate analytical methodologies and the relevant underpinning data handling, analysis and interpretation. The physics and chemistry behind state-of-the-art measurement technologies, their methods and application limitations will also be prioritised.

Research Excellence Framework (REF)

The Research Excellence Framework, or REF, is the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions. The 2014 REF was carried out by the UK's higher education funding bodies, and the results used to allocate research funding from 2015/16.

The following REF score was awarded to the department: Chemistry

94% rated 4* (‘world-leading’) or 3* (‘internationally excellent’)
