Our Chemistry degree is a highly versatile course allowing you to direct your studies to specialised areas of chemistry. The course places strong emphasis on practical chemistry and focuses on current topics in chemistry research.

You will gain extensive hands-on practical experience within the laboratory with a practical skills module that provides tuition in essential practical and analytical procedures and carry out an independent original research project. The practical and analytical skills obtained, in combination with the reporting of the data generated, are essential abilities that enhance employability within the Chemical Sciences industries.

Course content

You will study compulsory modules on advanced topics in chemistry, and laboratory skills for chemists as well as undertake a 90 credit extended laboratory project during the summer months.

This will be complemented with a choice of optional modules, allowing you to gain specialist knowledge in a topic that suits your career plans or personal interests. Optional module topics in the following areas: polymer chemistry, food science, chemical engineering, atmospheric chemistry and colour chemistry, amongst others.

Learning and teaching

Teaching methods involve a combination of lectures, tutorials, case studies, workshops and contact with relevant industries. The final stage of study is an individual extended research project which is typically carried out within a research group and may also include external industrial involvement.


Assessment is based on course work, research project performance and written exams which take place at the end of the semester in which the module is taught.

Career opportunities

This course includes modules that have a direct commercial relevance, for instance Food Processing and Synthesis and Applications of Polymers. You'll have the flexibility to design your master's degree allowing you to gain specialist knowledge in a topic that suits your career plans. The 90 credit research module, and a 20 credit introduction to practical skills module, will further enhance your employability.
