This challenging degree allows you to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of chemistry, as well as integrating mathematics to an advanced level throughout the programme.
You will acquire advanced analytical and statistical skills and have the opportunity to work on a significant independent research project, integrating chemistry and mathematics.
Southampton is one of only a few universities in the UK to offer an MChem Chemistry programme with Mathematics.
All of our Chemistry courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) increasing the employability and enhancing the CVs of our graduates.
The MChem Chemistry degree aims to enhance your sense of enthusiasm for chemistry and to involve you in an intellectually stimulating experience of learning in a supportive environment. You will gain extensive in-depth knowledge and understanding of chemistry and related subjects, as well as a comprehensive training in practical chemistry and an appreciation of the importance of the discipline in different contexts. We will provide a sound basis for a successful career as a professional chemist and provide opportunities for you to develop a range of transferable skills for both chemical and non-chemical careers.
The MChem Chemistry with Mathematics is a flexible Joint Honours degree that accommodates approximately 25% of study time, at each academic level, in mathematics while offering the same core content in chemistry as our other MChem degree and a degree of choice in advanced chemistry electives.
Integrated Masters students develop an in-depth knowledge and critical awareness of a substantial area of chemistry and are suitably prepared for employment in the chemical sciences or for studying further at doctoral level.
A key feature of the MChem programme is that you will complete a substantial original project that will equip you for a successful career as a professional chemist and enable you to fulfil the requirements of the Royal Society of Chemistry for the CChem qualification.
