Course summary

Our MSc Analytical Chemistry is designed to provide comprehensive training in the subject 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 using a range of techniques, such as electro-chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography, and spectroscopy; skills which are needed for a variety of purposes including drug development, forensic analysis and toxicology. 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.

Our Analytical Chemistry master's degree comprises a broad range of modules that cover all the major analytical techniques, complemented by studies in transferable and professional skills, and with the option to study aspects of medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry if desired.

Across the programme you will undertake core modules in separation techniques, spectroscopy and structural analysis, and research methods. You can choose two options from pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism, sensors, drug targets, drug design and drug sythesis, and innovations in analytical science.

You will also carry out a substantial research project (worth 60 credits) that will give you the experience of undertaking a research or development project managed according to modern industrial practice.
