This is our flagship course, which enables you to study chemistry in depth and to gain a masters level qualification. It also includes the scope to study a foreign language in year 1, and to carry out two research projects (one of which may be undertaken in a European University).
Our new 5 year MChem programme builds on the rigour of the 4 year course by offering students an industrial placement in their third year and is aimed at our top-tier graduates looking for a job in the industrial sector. This programme is recognised Europe-wide, being compliant with the Bologna agreement for European degrees and is one of very few such compliant programmes available in England and Wales. MChem graduates are highly sought after by sectors such as the pharmaceutical industry, fine chemicals research, government fast-track schemes and the degree can be used as a platform into business, law or teaching.
