About MSci Chemistry with Industrial Experience
The first two years of this course mirror those of our other chemistry degrees. During your third year, you will be working as a paid employee for a major chemical company in the UK, or possibly overseas, gaining invaluable work experience. Students have previously worked with companies such as BP, Shell and Kodak.
Working in the commercial sector allows students to become expert chemists and develop transferable skills. Your third year also includes some distance learning so that you are fully prepared for returning to the University for your final year.
