This programme shares core chemistry courses with the BSc (Hons) Chemistry degree, but is specifically aimed at producing professional chemists with the necessary skills to enter industrial research and development, academic research, or a range of other professional jobs.
It covers all aspects of chemistry, including analytical chemistry.
The MChem is the minimum academic requirement to obtain Chartered Chemist status.
Accreditation will be sought from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
A major emphasis throughout the course is the development of problem-solving and transferable skills.
