About MSci Chemistry with Study Abroad

Our MSci course is suited to you if you want to gain a solid foundation for postgraduate study or a career in science. The first two years are common to all of our degree courses. You will study fundamental concepts in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and applications in areas such as analytical, environmental, materials and theoretical chemistry. You will also develop your ability to design experiments and interpret results, and gain key skills through our chemistry-specific communications and mathematics units.

You will spend your third year studying abroad in a world-class chemistry department in an English-speaking university, before returning to Bristol for your final year. We currently have exchange links with universities in the USA, Canada, Singapore and Australia.

Your final year includes a 20-week research project, in which you will work with an academic member of staff and their research team on a current problem in chemistry.

As one of the UK’s biggest and most popular chemistry schools, we have a superb reputation for teaching and research. Our alumni have established careers with a wide range of employers, including Teach First, GlaxoSmithKline, Deloitte LLP and HM Revenue and Customs.
