Course content

Chemical analysis plays a role in virtually all aspects of everyday life throughout the world. With analytical techniques and instrumentation becoming evermore sophisticated, there is an increasing demand for qualified analytical chemists. This industrially relevant course will provide you with a strong background in the theory of analytical techniques and give you the ability to apply these techniques to complex analytical problems. You can also choose to combine your studies with training in the fundamentals of management theory.

The Analytical Chemistry MSc (ie not including Management Studies) provides exemption from Part A of the Mastership in Chemical Analysis, the statutory qualification for a public analyst.

You will gain the key skills required in the specialised area of analytical chemistry, including good measurement and scientific practice, evaluation interpretation of data, and other professional and organisational skills. You will also study core analytical techniques and their applications.

You may also be offered a placement within industry (depending on your results and project availability), where you will carry out your independent research project.

You can choose to study Management Studies with this degree, setting your scientific knowledge in a vocational context.
