Advanced Organic Chemistry

The course is designed for both chemistry graduates and those with degrees in combined sciences which include a chemistry component, and aims to enhance their broad understanding of chemistry and perfect their skills in underlying aspects of organic chemistry (organic reaction mechanisms, spectroscopy, and synthetic strategy); students can expect to reach the frontiers of knowledge in key aspects of this subject through a series of specialised advanced lecture courses, problem-solving classes, advanced laboratory exercises and a part-year laboratory research project.

Entry requirements

Applicants require a good 1st degree, minimum 2.1 or equivalent, in chemistry or a related joint discipline. All applicants who are not a British national and/or whose 1st language is not English will need to demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency. This is equivalent to an IELTS 6.5 overall, with a minimum of 6.0 in all 4 components, although we do accept many other types of qualifications or tests. In accordance with the UK Border Agencies Tier 4 visa guidelines, we will also waive the English language requirement for applicants who meet the defined nationality test or who have completed a degree level course in 1 of the listed countries.
