Course summary

Materials chemistry is a really exciting area to be involved in, as new discoveries such as nanomaterials or new functional polymers, have the capacity to make major and immediate contributions to society.As such, a graduate in materials chemistry will be well placed to take full advantage of exciting job opportunities in new areas of materials science.Chemistry at the University of Bradford has recognised the importance of these emerging technologies and has invested heavily in staff and expertise. In such a fast-paced sector it is important that a materials chemist receives a learning experience that is at the forefront of the discipline.Our materials chemists are leading on the development of exciting projects in functional polymers for the detection of bacteria, the use of nanomaterials in drug delivery and the use of novel molecular organic frameworks for hydrogen storage.The materials chemistry curriculum has been designed around a solid understanding of the fundamental science, and an appreciation of the exciting applications possible with these new materials.During the first two years, you will develop a sound understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of chemistry, with core content delivered across the traditional areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. To give you an intellectually fulfilling experience our chemistry courses allow you to take 20 credits of elective modules in stages 1 and 2, with subjects offered from across the university’s teaching portfolio such as mathematics, engineering, economics and more.In the third year we will introduce you to specialist content in medicinal, materials and analytical chemistry. You will also have the opportunity to study a specific subject to a greater depth during an extended dissertation.It is possible to exit after stage 3 with a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry.In the Master's year you will develop a deeper understanding of the application of chemistry to solving real-world problems. Master's-level training focuses on deploying training in real-world settings. Academic research experience involves students working on their own project as part of a research team alongside postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers at the University. **Professional accreditation**Students can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).**Rankings**Ranked 18th in the UK for Chemistry in the Guardian University League Tables 2019.Our BSc and MChem Chemistry programmes received 94% overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2020.
