Our Chemistry MSc provides advanced training in modern chemistry. It will give you an overview of chemistry topics as practised in modern research. You will receive speciality training in areas of organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry.
Through this course you will achieve a high level of research competence. The research project and dissertation will provide you with training in tackling and communicating the results of a significant research problem in chemistry.
You will also gain experience in relevant aspects of laboratory work, including COSHH and safety.
You will gain specialist knowledge and understanding through lectures, seminars and workshops. You will also have taught laboratory classes where you’ll perform carefully designed and tested experiments.
The course is delivered through the School of Chemistry. The School will provide personal study support throughout your course.
Your work is in chemistry laboratories using modern analytical equipment with access to computer clusters, specialist computer software, online resources, an extensive library and dedicated study areas. All teaching takes place at the university's campus in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The School of Chemistry has modern teaching and research facilities along with major research strengths in drug and medicinal chemistry. Our new teaching laboratories, costing £1.9 million, have recently opened.
