What will I learn?

With our BSc (Hons) Chemistry degree, we blend laboratory study with classroom learning to ensure you graduate with a balanced understanding of the subject, from inorganic and organic chemistry, to physical and analytical chemistry.We’ve worked to shape our curriculum around industry needs and developments, so we’ll equip you with the skills and strengths that employers want. And, while the units you’ll study provide a well-rounded understanding of the subject as a whole, you’ll also have the flexibility to focus on those areas that interest you most – developing the knowledge, experience and skills you’ll need to fulfil your professional or academic ambitions. As such, we cover a wide range of specialist areas, including physiochemical processes, materials chemistry, drug discovery, green chemistry, catalysis, computational chemical modelling, spectroscopy, and synthetic chemistry.**FEATURES AND BENEFITS:**- We have invested £1.8m in upgrading our synthetic chemistry laboratories and installing new analytical equipment.- Our teaching is supported by a range of technological innovations including videos, specialist software and simulations to help you to prepare for practicals in advance – building your confidence in using lab equipment and allowing you to practise virtually from home.- You will gain experience in advanced synthetic chemistry skills and hands-on operation of high specification analytical instrumentation to provide you with the skills employers are looking for.- In your first year you will have access to our online homework system, which allows your lecturers to give you immediate, targeted feedback and hints to help you understand and practise key concepts.- You can opt for a four-year route, with the third year of your degree spent on an industry placement or studying abroad with one of our partner institutions in Europe, North America or Australasia. This is subject to national and international travel restrictions.- Our diverse research activities directly inform our teaching.
