Research across the course team spans organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry, with particular strengths in medicinal, environmental, materials and analytical chemistry.
You will undertake research projects arising from and contributing to this research as part of one of our multidisciplinary research groups. Visiting experts share their knowledge with you by presenting their current research.
You will gain extensive practical experience in our specialist labs including chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, electroanalysis, and many other research techniques. The optional placement year is an opportunity to further develop your skills and gain valuable work experience.
