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.
Students graduating with postgraduate qualifications enter a wide range of careers in the public and private sectors. Graduates include research chemists, scientific managers in the chemical, pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industries, university lecturers, teachers, and accountants.
Many people go on to further postdoctoral research either in the UK or overseas before entering employment.
The Department has strong research links with industry providing opportunities for students to meet industrial colleagues and discuss career options.
Following this MSc, students will be suited to working as professional chemists and/or undertaking chemical research. Opportunities could include employment within the chemical industry or progression to University PhD studies.
