The M.S. in Analytical Chemistry at University of Huddersfield is designed to train you in the scientific methodology relating to analytical chemistry and extend your interest and knowledge in all areas of the subject.


The Analytical Chemistry program offered by University of Huddersfield will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the most recent technological developments and applications in Analytical Chemistry.

Instrumental techniques used in the analysis of organic compounds, metals, solids, etc. are all covered. Possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis are discussed, thus allowing the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data.

The taught part of the course consists of eight core modules in Analytical Chemistry plus the research project. The research project requires 50 days laboratory work and takes place during the summer.


Currently there are good employment opportunities for Analytical Chemists not only in the chemical industry, but in a range of other sectors. In industry they monitor product quality, raw materials and effluent. In hospitals, as Clinical Chemists, they monitor the health of patients by analysing samples of blood or urine. Public Analysts working on behalf of local government check the food we eat and the air we breathe. Analytical Chemists also test for toxic substances in the work place, pollutants in the environment, and levels of drug abuse. Analytical Chemists are also employed in the pharmaceutical industry working on drug development and in tablet testing. 

Recent graduates from this course are employed in the pharmaceutical and food Industries as well as in research positions and in educational establishments.
