The Course


Our Analytical Chemistry MSc programme is designed to provide comprehensive training in analytical chemistry and its implementation in a variety of fields including biomedical, pharmaceutical, food and environmental analysis. Analytical chemists assess the chemical structure and nature of substances. Their skills are needed for a variety of purposes including drug development, forensic analysis and toxicology. Analytical chemists can specialise in areas as varied as toxicology, pharmaceuticals and forensics. Analytical chemists analyse samples using a range of techniques such as electro-chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography and spectroscopy. They are employed by a variety of public and private sector organisations, and can specialise in areas such as toxicology, pharmaceuticals, quality control or forensics.

Graduates from the Analytical Chemistry programme have progressed to careers in a range of industries, and many go on to further study and PhD programmes. Recent graduate destinations include: Novartis, Bioanalytical Scientist; Sanofi Genzyme, Analytical Chemist; Loughborough University: PhD projects in medical breath analysis and novel energy applications. The Analytical Chemistry MSc provides specialist training in the use of a range of different analytical techniques and methodologies. Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
