Master's degrees

Our postgraduate students are part of a stimulating and inclusive academic community within the Department. They are regularly engaged in high-profile, high-impact research projects which continue to address real world problems in vital areas such as energy and the environment, defence and security, and health and medicine. Our academic and research staff are nationally and internationally recognised as experts in their fields.

As a postgraduate student on one of our taught MSc programmes, you will be able to extend the knowledge gained at undergraduate level and develop professional skills in a range of specialist chemical sciences.

Your studies will pave the way for careers in the pharmaceutical and food industries, analytical and environmental laboratories, public and regulatory utilities, and industrial laboratories, or for further research as a PhD.

The choice of emphasis available through the elective modules on our programmes enables you to tailor your study to best suit your own career aspirations and areas of interest. 

You will enjoy access to a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities, enhanced by the University’s £17 million state-of-the-art STEMLab and a £6 million investment in newly refurbished chemistry laboratories. Our research labs and study areas enable students to gain first-hand experience of the latest techniques in analytical, environmental, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry.
