Course summary

The Master of Chemistry (MChem) provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the bachelor’s but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques, including a major research project throughout the final year. Combine your passion for chemistry with a desire to make a real contribution to the development of new pharmaceuticals.

You’ll gain a solid foundation in chemistry with a focus on how drugs and medicines are designed and made, how they work and why they’re successful. Major pharmaceutical companies have contributed to the design of the course so you can be sure that you will gain experience in areas that are of interest to industry.

You’ll develop in-depth knowledge of the drug design process, and the skills to carry out experimental and computational drug discovery projects. You’ll also be able to specialise in areas that interest you most with optional units and a research project. There will also be opportunities for you to put your chemistry knowledge into practice in research laboratories and other professional environments outside the University.

Our chemistry degrees have the same core units in the first year giving you the flexibility to switch courses.

Year abroad

Broaden your horizons with a year studying at a university abroad. You’ll experience another culture whilst studying a course that complements your studies at Bath. We have links with universities in the United States, Canada, Australasia, Asia and Europe, including the Simon Fraser University, National University Singapore, University of Western Australia and the University of Helsinki. Opportunities can't be guaranteed but you will receive tailored support from our specialist team to help you secure a study year abroad.

Prepare for your future

A wealth of career opportunities are open to you as a chemistry graduate. You could go on to work in technical areas, or scientific research and development in materials, pharmaceuticals, energy and the environment. You’ll also be well suited to broader roles in education, scientific publishing, patents, administration and finance, or further study such as a PhD or PGCE.
