About MSci Chemical Physics

The four-year MSci course is ideal for those considering scientific careers that will make direct use of their subject-specific knowledge and skills.

Our degrees incorporate units in chemistry, physics and mathematics. The first year gives you a comprehensive grounding in these subjects, while later years focus on atomic and molecular science and its interdisciplinary applications.

You will also focus on areas at the interface between chemistry and physics, so there is less organic and synthetic chemistry and more physical and inorganic chemistry. Similarly, there is very little nuclear and particle physics after your first year, but an emphasis on materials science and nanoscience.

As well as lectures and practical classes, small-group tutorials and workshops help develop your understanding of challenging and exciting concepts. You will undertake a project or scientific dissertation working in a research group with a member of staff.

The course is accredited by both the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
