About the programme

Chemistry is fundamental: it is the enabling science for many technologies and has played an integral role in many of the advances made by modern society, from genetics to human health, and from environmental control to information technology.

Students following the MChem and BSc programmes take the same chemistry courses for the first three years, but make the final decision between BSc and MChem at the end of the second year.

In Year 3, you will choose your courses from a range of options, allowing you either to start specialising or to maintain a broad interest. If you opt for the MChem programme, you will select options to best prepare you for your advanced work in Year 4.
