The MChem is an integrated four-year undergraduate Masters course. It will enable you to gain a balanced understanding of inorganic, organic, physical and analytical chemistry with sufficient flexibility each year to select areas of study that will develop your knowledge, experience and skills appropriate to a range of science-based careers. Typical areas of study include reactions and mechanisms, materials chemistry, forensic chemistry, drug discovery, computational chemistry and spectroscopy, chemical synthesis, physiochemical processes and environmental chemistry. These study areas are complemented by our strong focus on practical laboratory skills throughout the course. The MChem route includes professional studies and you will spend a year either focusing on a major independent project of your chosen specialism or working in industry. You can also incorporate foreign language options. The choice between MChem and BSc may be left until the end of Year 2, if you initially apply for the BSc (Hons) degree. Progress to the MChem programme is subject to your overall performance at the end of Year 2. Features and benefits of the course: - The MChem route is pending re-accreditation by the Royal Society of Chemistry and upon successful completion of the course, the qualification can be used in part fulfilment for associate membership of the RSC. Enhanced education in chemistry gives you the opportunity to undertake research for a higher degree or to pursue a career in industry as a professional chemist. In the last two years we have invested half a million pounds in chemistry laboratories and equipment. Our laboratories are state-of-the-art and will give you first hand experience of a wide variety of manual and instrumental lab skills and techniques. The four year route with a year in industry allows you gain valuable industry experience as part of your degree. 90% of students are overall satisfied with the School of Science and the Environment (from 261 (70%) students who responded to the 2015 National Student Survey). 94% of Chemistry graduates go straight into employment and/or further study according to the DLHE survey 2014 for all respondents available for employment or further study and who destinations are known.
