What will I learn?

Our Chemistry MSci degree will give you a theoretical and experimental understanding of chemistry in the modern world. Our teaching is research-enriched, transcending the traditional divisions of physical, organic and inorganic chemistry and integrating practical methods throughout. In your final year of the MSci, you’ll explore your interests with a 6-month research project in our state-of-the-art labs. The course is designed to train the next generation of articulate, flexible chemists for a wide variety of careers in chemical, biotech and pharmaceutical industries and extending to wide careers such as finance, law and media.

Key benefits

  • Accredited by the Royal Society for Chemistry.
  • You will work on a major six-month project in one of our research groups.
  • You’ll benefit from research-enriched teaching from internationally renowned scientists and researchers.
  • You’ll have access to our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, located in the heart of London.
  • Includes an opportunity to transfer to a Study Abroad pathway and spend your third year, or a semester of your third year or fourth year, studying at a partner institution.

Our course starts with covering the key principles of physical, organic and inorganic chemistry, with additional maths to ensure you can successfully handle advanced physical and computational chemistry. Our course also incorporates an integrated laboratory course that brings together the different strands of chemistry and applies them to a range of chemical systems. In your third year, you will choose from a range of specialised modules in order to investigate particular aspects of the application of chemical principles to contemporary global and industrial challenges. Optional short research projects may also be available as part of the Research Methods module. Your fourth year will be dominated by a six-month research project in one of our Research groups at King’s, which will give you the opportunity to experience and test your research potential. Our academics have expertise in a number of research areas, including spectroscopic ands computational methods, materials science and nanotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences and analytical, green and sustainable chemistry.

Employability

Our Chemistry graduates are in high demand because employers recognise the wide range of skills that they possess. We train Chemists to think logically and apply mathematical and practical techniques to solve real problems. Our ambition is to produce graduates who have a wider vision of the applications of chemistry for the coming decades, and who are equipped for more flexible careers, so it is not surprising that our graduates can be found in a range of sectors including research, management, finance, medicine and law, where they can exploit their skills and expertise.
