Course summary

Overview

The full-time Analytical Sciences MSc and Postgraduate Diploma is a research-focused degree.

You’ll develop the experience and techniques required to be an independent practitioner of modern analytical science, with the skills required for research and by industry.

It delivers core teaching in advanced aspects of analytical chemistry and enables you to explore areas of specialist knowledge through optional modules.

You’ll apply a wide range of analytical techniques and gain invaluable research experience through an extended research project.

Having developed the fundamentals of the analytical sciences, these core techniques are applied to disciplines including:

  • Spectroscopy
  • Archaeometry
  • Materials characterisation
  • Separation science and mass spectrometry

Learning and assessment

Learning activities include lectures, laboratories, workshops and directed study.

Core modules are dedicated to developing generic analytical key skills, specialism practice and project management experience.

The specialist modules relating to the analytical instruments include lectures, workshops, hands-on laboratory and instrument sessions with relevant samples under the instruction of a team of interdisciplinary specialists in the area.

The modules are assessed through course work (problem solving exercises, laboratory reports, project plan, training plan), oral presentations and formal exams.

This research intensive masters emphasises early engagement in hands-on laboratory and analytical work with the output of MSc thesis plus research paper draft.

These progressively focus on student-centred approaches to learning and will reflect increasing reliance on independent responsibility for learning. In this way you will develop the attributes needed for life-long learning and continued professional development.
