Swansea University

Applied Analytical Science (LCMS)

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - winner of the 'Postgraduate' category at the WhatUni? Student Choice Awards 2017. World demand for mass spectrometry (MS) and chromatography has grown at an unprecedented rate, with qualified graduates in short supply and highly sought-after. Postgraduate (PG) training is essential as undergraduates are not taught to the required depth. Swansea is the only UK institution to offer a range of schemes solely dedicated to these topics, drawing upon expertise in the Institute of Mass Spectrometry (IMS), based at a long established UK centre of excellence.

Course modules

Modules: mass spectrometry (basics and fundamentals); separation science and sample handling; data analysis and method development; professional management and laboratory practice; research project.

Assessment methods

Assessment for taught modules will include examinations, case studies, essays, problem sheets and database searching results. The MRes project will be assessed through a written thesis supplemented by a viva. For students enrolled on the MRes the completion of all taught modules only (60 credits) will result in the award of Higher Education PG Certificate for students who exit at this point. This certificate exit qualification is different to the programme "PG Certificate in Applied LCMS".
