Course summary

Why choose this course?

Chemical analysis plays a role in virtually all aspects of everyday life throughout the world. With analytical techniques and instrumentation becoming evermore sophisticated, there is an increasing demand for qualified analytical chemists. This industrially relevant course will provide you with a strong background in the theory of analytical techniques and give you the ability to apply these techniques to complex analytical problems.

You will gain the key skills required in the specialised area of analytical chemistry, including good measurement and scientific practice, evaluation interpretation of data, and other professional and organisational skills. You will also study core analytical techniques and their applications. You may also be offered a placement within industry (depending on your results and project availability), where you will carry out your independent research project.

Where this course will take you

Recent graduates have gone on to a range of roles, including: chemists in large and SME chemical/pharmaceutical companies; teaching; PhD research; sales and marketing and managerial positions.

You'll be assessed through short exercises, essays, independent study, and a 15,000-word dissertation. For this course you will be assessed entirely on submitted coursework (i.e. there are no exams, and no assessed oral presentations or practical components).

Careers and recruitment advice
