This course aims to:
- Develop your skills and knowledge in the main areas of chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry) in an integrated manner with selected areas of specialism such as pharmaceutical chemistry, forensic chemistry, polymer chemistry, environmental chemistry and selected aspects of industrial chemistry. In addition, if you choose to undertake a sandwich degree, the course will allow you to acquire technical skills in the workplace and enable you to integrate knowledge gained in the theoretical aspects of the course into the professional environment.
- Build on the skills and knowledge above by providing the opportunity to specialise is selected aspects of organic, inorganic, physical or analytical chemistry at level 7, including a substantial year-long research project.
- Produce a graduate who is “fit for purpose”, who satisfies the academic and professional requirements for associate membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry, who is ready for employment in the chemistry or a related industry, or who can progress to teaching, further study or research aspirations.
