Course content

The MSc in Analytical Sciences is designed to provide graduates in science and related subjects with systematic training in the application of modern analytical methods. It aims to develop the necessary practical, interpretative analytical skills to apply a wide range of analytical techniques to key areas of application.

The course looks to develop a solid set of practical skills leading to specialist applications and employment opportunities as an analytical scientist in pharmaceutical, forensic, archaeological, and environmental analytical sciences. Students can benefit from specialist research laboratories and instrumentation in a research-focused environment. Students are expected to develop an array of interdisciplinary practical skills through specialist lectures, workshops, and hands-on laboratory and analytical experience.

This programme features a range of core modules covering areas including analytical data analysis, atomic and molecular analysis, bioanalytical methods and sensor technologies, chromatography and mass spectrometric methods, materials and structural analytical methods, and method development and validation.

Contact hours on this programme may vary depending on each individual module and the stage of study. Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. For every hour spent in class, students are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

Course composition and delivery is different for each module and may include lectures, seminars, workshops, independent study, laboratory practicals, research, and one-to-one learning.
