Undergraduate courses

Our courses allow you flexibility and choice. We provide a carefully targeted chemistry core so you can build a solid grounding across the subject, as well as more specialised options to develop your interests in the context of  your career or  postgraduate study.

Choose courses that allow for a year of Industrial Experience or a year of Study Abroad or you could also opt for a course that specialises in Medicinal Chemistry.

You can opt to work towards a BSc or a MChem award; this decision is normally taken at the end of your second year of study.  Our MChem degrees have been developed to enable you to pursue careers as professional chemists in industrial research groups or in higher education.

Our graduates are eligible for membership of The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) – the professional society for chemists in Britain. At BSc level, bachelor accreditation gives you access to qualified membership of the RSC, and forms the basis for satisfying the academic requirements for achieving Chartered Chemist (CChem) through further study or continued professional development. Graduation at the MChem level with First or Second Class Honours provides you with access to qualified membership of the RSC, and fully satisfies the academic requirements for award of Chartered Chemist (CChem) status.
