Typically we will require a minimum of a 2.1 BSc Honours degree or equivalent in Chemistry.
Months of entry
This MSc aims to provide students who have already studied chemistry to the level equivalent to a good UK BSc (Hons) with the necessary additional skills and depth of knowledge to become professional chemists.
Students take 90 credits of advanced chemistry modules in Semesters 1 and 2, chosen from a wide range of topics and studying alongside our Integrated Master's MChem students. Module topics range from core physical, inorganic and organic chemistry to specialist cutting-edge research areas and choices can be made to suit individual skills and interests. Most modules offered are at M-level although up to 30 credits at level 3 can be taken.
Alongside these taught modules in Semesters 1 and 2, students start to gain relevant research skills by taking a common 30 credit module, PGSC003 Introduction to Research, tailored to suit their particular background and research area.
During the Summer, students undertake a substantial 60 credit research project PGSC004, working in an active research group.
Information for international students
Applications from international students are welcome. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.
