Course Summary

Get ready to be at the forefront of organic chemistry today. Underpinning research and development in many areas of the chemical industry, organic chemistry couldn’t be more important. In fact, it’s the central discipline that drives innovation across many diverse areas of the science and technology industry - from forensics to food, pharmaceuticals to energy.

You’re already a chemist, but you know that advanced level training is becoming increasingly important in your field. As well as strengthening your broader chemistry knowledge, you’re excited about specialising in this fascinating area - studying subjects such as stereochemistry, medicinal chemistry, organometallics and spectroscopy.

This is exactly the kind of high-level training that’s so sought after by employers in the chemical industry, as well as top academic institutions working on fundamental research. So this course will be the next step on your journey towards a fulfilling and fascinating scientific career.

OVERVIEW

Building on your undergraduate training in chemistry, this MSc allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, whilst developing advanced knowledge in aspects of organic chemistry.

Whether you’re a chemistry graduate who wants to specialise, or you have a degree in combined science with a chemistry component, this course is designed to take your knowledge to the next level.

You can expect to reach the frontiers of knowledge in key aspects of your subject, including organic reaction mechanisms, spectroscopy, and synthetic strategy. You’ll learn through advanced lectures, seminars and laboratory classes – which are specifically tailored to the needs of the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, speciality and fine organic chemicals industries.

ASSESSMENT

A key part of the assessment for this course will be your original research project. You’ll get support throughout your research from an experienced supervisor, who will also guide you in preparing your final dissertation and presentation.

Alongside this you’ll hand in periodic coursework to help us assess your understanding of lecture material, and write short reports to help us assess your laboratory training.
