MChem or BSc?

MChem courses come with a final year of research training, where you'll work in the lab with a team of professional scientists on an unanswered question in chemistry. They're the best route for students who are thinking about a career in scientific research.

Accreditation

All of our courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, so you’ll cover the organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry that every chemist needs for a successful career. 

Flexibility

But there’s a lot of flexibility too, with core and optional modules covering environmental and sustainable chemistry, biological and medicinal chemistry, advanced materials and nanotechnology, laser chemistry or even chemistry in space.

It's possible to transfer between any of our courses up to end of your second year, and you can transfer between Chemistry MChem and Chemistry BSc well into your third year.
