About Structural Chemistry
Masters degrees in Structural Chemistry equip postgraduates with the skills to analyse and determine the function and structure of chemicals and chemical compounds.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.
You will specialise in the analysis and arrangement of atoms within various organic and synthetic molecules, and the chemical bonds which hold atoms together. Practical training is offered in molecular modelling theory and techniques, such as writing structural formulae. Other training includes electromagnetic analysis (spectroscopy) and chemometrics (measuring chemical data).
In understanding the structure of various molecules within chemicals, Structural Chemists are involved with wide-ranging research which aids the day-to-day needs of human life. From assessing the efficiency of pesticides, to developing the latest drugs to cure disease, the possibilities of applying these technical skills are far-reaching.
Traditional roles include frontline development of new synthetic and chemically modified organic bonds. This includes lab work, chemical engineering and product design and manufacture. Your expertise would also make you suitable for legislative positions and consultancy in a range of industries.

Our one-year course combines the opportunity to take modules from a wide range of cutting-edge fields in chemistry with sessions on practical, technical skills, scientific writing, communication and presentation, and a three month summer project.
This twelve month chemistry MSc is designed primarily for international students, either to act as a preparation for PhD studies or for students wishing to broaden their research experience and knowledge of chemistry within the context of the English language.
The MSc in Chemical Science is a one-year taught programme run by the School of Chemistry. It provides students with advanced knowledge and skills in modern chemical sciences and encourages them to explore research-led topics through a wide range of modules.
Our programme is structured around a solid core comprising of three main analytical techniques – mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction – each containing common themes (data collection, analysis and management).
2-year master's programme provides thorough knowledge and skills in the areas of laboratory and technological measurements, testing and chemical analysis methods, quality systems, metrology and related economic and legal aspects.
This postgraduate course is an excellent introduction to protein crystallography. It is designed for those who are interested in pursuing a career in this exciting and rapidly expanding field, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, or for those who would like to expand and update their existing scientific knowledge.
Research degrees may be undertaken in the three main areas of research interest in the Laboratory. The growing number of academic staff are supported in their research by the technical staff and post-doctoral research fellows.
The Southampton Electrochemistry Group has a leading international reputation for both research and education. The group is spread across Chemistry in the Faculty of Natural and Environmental Sciences and Engineering Sciences in the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment.
The University of Sheffield's MSc Chemistry course is designed to take you to the next stage of your scientific career. From your undergraduate degree, you will know which areas of chemistry interest you most, and you might already know what kind of job you'd like to do.
The programme focuses on specialised modern analytical methodology. The range of industries or institutes where these skills are in demand includes the pharmaceutical industry, environmental institutions, research institutes and also the oil & gas industry.
Ageing infrastructure from the golden days of the oil and gas and energy industry is now being identified for decommissioning. Some of it is in the North Sea but many other countries are increasingly realising that they need to decommission properly and effectively due to environmental regulation.
These exciting 12-month postgraduate Masters degrees consist of taught, advanced level, lecture courses and also provide an opportunity to conduct high-level research within one of the world class groups in the School of Chemistry.
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.
Our postgraduate programmes are specifically designed to enhance your career prospects and research expertise. Students will benefit from our broad range of industrial partners and internationally leading research expertise, and will get the opportunity to work within our research groups.
