Course content

The objective of the programme is to produce skilled postgraduates who can act in the increasingly wide research area of chemistry. The taught element encompasses subject specific critical evaluation of scientific literature, writing and presentational skills as well as project planning and advanced lab skills (60 credits). The research element (120 credits) will require students to undertake a major research project under direct supervision which will be written up as a thesis. This will open up postgraduate career opportunities in a broad range of employment areas in the chemical, environmental, pharmaceutical and biotech industries. This programme can also be extended to PhD studies by the addition of one year’s worth of research. Important Notice: Bangor University is currently in consultation regarding the teaching of Chemistry. A possible outcome of this consultation is that this Chemistry programme may be discontinued. Discontinuation may result in students not being admitted onto the course with effect from, and including, the coming academic year (2019/20).
