Similar in structure to our MChem Chemistry (F103), we will support you in finding a one-year placement at a UK or EU-based chemistry company in year four. Year three includes core and elective advanced chemistry courses and an independent research project. Your industrial placement will provide a unique opportunity to strengthen your employability, develop industrial contacts and enhance your transferable skills. This integrated masters course is designed for those with a keen interest in pursuing a career in the chemical sciences, but many continue their study after graduation (PhD, MSc).
Years 1 and 2: Students study comprehensive theoretical chemistry with an embedded element of laboratory based learning. Years 3 and/or Year 4: Students study an extensive range of advanced chemistry courses, hosted in Southampton, with different and complementary independent research experiences in each year. F1BC/F1GC students will replace two of their chemistry lecture courses with courses in medicinal science/maths. Year 3 may be spent on an assessed UK industry placement. Year 4 includes some core and elective advanced chemistry courses and an independent research project. Typical course content: fundamentals of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, advanced subject specialisation (eg natural product synthesis, materials chemistry, nanoscience, electrochemistry, medicinal chemistry, laser spectroscopy, environmental chemistry, X-ray crystallography), relevant and topical laboratory teaching, at least one independent research opportunity, possibility of an industrial research placement, skills training relevant to all potential careers.
The University of Southampton is a place of transformation. Through education and research, innovation and enterprise, we unlock creative potential and provide opportunities that transform the lives of our students, our community, society and the economy.
