MSc in Advanced Organic Chemistry

Building on your undergraduate training in chemistry, this MSc allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, whilst developing advanced knowledge in aspects of organic chemistry. Whether you’re a chemistry graduate who wants to specialise, or you have a degree in combined science with a chemistry component, this course is designed to take your knowledge to the next level. You can expect to reach the frontiers of knowledge in key aspects of your subject, including organic reaction mechanisms, spectroscopy, and synthetic strategy. You’ll learn through advanced lectures, seminars and laboratory classes – which are specifically tailored to the needs of the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, speciality and fine organic chemicals industries. Importantly, you’ll also complete an in-depth laboratory research project, which allows you to work closely with our pioneering, award-winning academics on a topic of your choice. Through this you’ll showcase all your skills and learning – as well as bringing new original thought and research to bear on your topic. You’ll graduate with high level specialised skills and knowledge in organic chemistry, ready to embark on a career in the industry or progression to PhD level study.

Course Structure

During this course, you will take general and advanced level lecture courses alongside problem solving seminars. We specifically select subject areas to enhance your training on techniques and knowledge that are in high demand by the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, speciality and fine organic chemicals industries. Subjects include: synthesis, asymmetric target oriented synthesis, spectroscopy, organometallic chemistry, stereochemistry and catalysis. There’s also a large laboratory component of the course, which runs throughout the working year. You’ll start with an eight-week programme of advanced laboratory exercises and experiments designed to provide a realistic training in experimental chemistry by building on basic preparative skills. Following this you’ll work on a research project, which will be assessed through a written dissertation and oral examination.
