This modular degree aims to provide a flexible course that will enable you to acquire specialist research techniques and expertise in your chosen area of Chemistry.
You will be trained to undertake practical and theoretical research in your specialist area of Chemistry with guidance from an experienced researcher, and follow a number of lecture courses which are selected to complement your project.
A major focus of the course is on the practical methods and the development and perfection of research methods and skills. Your research project will be undertaken in one of our research groups. Our research activities are grouped into three sections: Chemistry for Life and the Environment, Materials Chemistry and Molecular Chemistry.
- MSc Chemistry Research Project - Postgraduate Chemistry Research Methods and Skills
Plus optional modules from a list including: - Further Organometallic Chemistry - Synthesis of Complex Target Molecules - Structure Determination - Heterocycles and Natural Products - Polymer Chemistry - Medicinal Chemistry and a selection of modules offered by other departments.
What career can you have?
You will acquire a number of valuable transferable skills relating to organisation and time management, communication, information handling, numeracy, problem solving and team working. Many of our graduates from this degree course go on to pursue a career in Research and Development.
To be eligible for admission an applicant will usually hold at least a lower second class honours degree in Chemistry from a British university or equivalent qualification. Those who do not have such qualification may be granted admission in special circumstances. Although the usual route to PhD is by direct entry, it is possible for MSc students to transfer to PhD.
