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 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 the chemistry department of an English-speaking university, before returning to Bristol for your final year. We currently have exchange links with universities in the US, Canada, Singapore, Japan and Australia. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad.

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 the Research Excellence Framework 2014.

Our alumni have established careers with a wide range of employers, including Teach First, GlaxoSmithKline, Deloitte LLP and HM Revenue and Customs.
