You'll take taught classes for the first two semesters. In the third semester, you'll work on an extended research project of your own. Employers value this kind of experience. By the time you graduate, you'll have proved you can work within a research group, organise your own research, complete a project and communicate your findings.

Core modules: You'll carry out two smaller laboratory projects prior to starting your main research project, to develop practical and scientific communication skill. You also undertake a Research and Presentation Skills module to further develop the higher level skills needed for research. Examples of optional modules: Lectured modules consist of a wide range of segments, spanning the breadth of chemistry, from which you can choose, to tailor your MSc to your strengths and interests.
