Programme structure: Chemistry with Scientific Computing (MSci) - what's running in 2021/22

This integrated Masters programme has been designated as type III: Professional or Practice Masters in accordance with the QAA Degree Characteristics Statement. Please see the Regulations and Code of Practice for Taught Programmes for further information on this type of programme.

Note that we are currently planning a review of the units and content taught on our existing programmes, which is very likely to lead to greater choice and smaller units. We will aim to reduce the credit point requirement for year 2 to 120cp by the time cohort 1 commences this year of study.

Core Concepts in Chemistry and Intermediate Practical Chemistry for Chemistry with Scientific Computing are must pass units. It is necessary to pass all mandatory units. You must achieve an overall average mark of 50% in both the second and third year of study.

Exit awards

All undergraduate degree programmes allow the opportunity for a student to exit from a programme with a Diploma or Certificate of Higher Education.

  • To be awarded a Diploma of Higher Education, a student must have successfully completed 240 credit points, of which at least 90 must be at level 5.
  • To be awarded a Certificate of Higher Education, a student must have successfully completed 120 credit points at level 4.

Integrated Master's degrees may also allow the opportunity for a student to exit from the programme with an equivalent Bachelor's degree where a student has achieved 360 credit points, of which 90 must be at level 6, and has successfully met any additional criteria as described in the programme specification.

The opportunities for a student to exit from one of the professional programmes in Veterinary Science, Medicine, and Dentistry with an Award is outlined in the relevant Programme Regulations (which are available as an annex in the Regulations and Code of Practice for Taught Programmes).
