This one-year course combines the opportunity for students to take modules from a wide range of cutting-edge fields in chemistry with sessions on practical, technical skills, and scientific writing, communication and presentation and a three month summer project.
The MSc Chemistry is based on Southampton's highly successful MChem degree. The one-year taught course offers the opportunity to study Chemistry at an advanced level, covering both the traditional core areas of analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, as well as more specialist courses aligned to the research groupings of the Department.
The course provides opportunities for you to develop and demonstrate advanced knowledge, understanding, and practical/research skills.
The programme comprises core and optional modules as well as practical courses in semesters one and two, followed by an individual research project based in our own research laboratories.
