Chemistry BSc Hons
Chemists are great problem solvers and analytical thinkers; they have been instrumental in developing our modern world. Our Chemistry degree equips you with a multidisciplinary skillset that will prepare you for your career.
Our three-year degree program allows you to explore a range of core topics, including chemical synthesis and materials, chemical physics and analysis, chemical computation and theory, and chemical biology. We offer a diverse range of modules that are developed, taught and assessed by world-leading academics, whose cutting-edge research continually shapes the content that they teach. Our modern approach combines the traditionally segregated subjects of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, and teaches chemistry in logical stages.
As part of the degree, you will receive an expansive introduction to the foundations of chemistry, from the fundamentals of atoms and molecules to chemical reaction kinetics. Later years build on these foundations and develop advanced knowledge and skills in modern chemical theory and contemporary practical techniques.
In your first year, you will study the core chemistry modules - comprising two-thirds of the year - along with optional modules that can be selected from a range of subject areas taught in the University. You will develop your practical skills in our brand-new, research-grade labs, with access to an impressive range of equipment. Alongside the technical knowledge, you will gain excellent transferable skills in communication, research, data analysis, mathematics and computation, and analytic and logical thinking; all of which can be applied to many different career paths.
Your second year builds upon the broad fundamentals of the first year, and you will cover some familiar topics in more detail, such as organic synthesis, spectroscopy, and kinetics, while new, more advanced topics are introduced, such as d-metal chemistry, soft-matter chemistry, and quantum chemistry.
Your final year will enable you to apply your skills by undertaking a research project, which provides an exciting opportunity for you to work as part of one of our research groups, alongside postgraduate students and postdoctoral staff. Additionally, you will study a series of advanced taught modules that allow you to examine areas of chemistry in greater depth.
