About MSci Chemistry with Study in Continental Europe

Our MSci programme 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.

Alongside your study in chemistry in your first and second years, you will study a foreign language, as you prepare for a year at a major European university. You will be taught and assessed in the language of your host university during your third year. We currently have exchange links with universities in Germany, France, Switzerland and Spain.

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 challenge in chemistry.

We are one of the UK’s biggest chemistry schools and we have a superb reputation for teaching and research; over a third of our research rated 'world-leading' in REF 2014. Our alumni have established careers with a wide range of employers, including Teach First, GlaxoSmithKline, Deloitte LLP and HM Revenue and Customs.
