At the end of the degree, you will have developed a capacity for logical reasoning, an ability to solve problems and the capability to organise and carry out independent research as well as a good knowledge of chemistry. The first two years cover the important fundamental areas of chemistry. In the second year you will also be able to study an option in analytical chemistry, modern biology, business, medicinal chemistry, forensic science, chemical engineering or environmental science. The third year is spent in industry where you will undertake a relevant research project. The final year includes a substantial research project, more advanced topics in modern chemistry and further modules in your chosen option. The research projects are closely related to the areas of expertise within the department including medicinal chemistry, catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, forensic and analytical chemistry.
