Course summary

Do you want to pursue a high-level research career as a professional chemist? If so, this is the degree for you. The final year brings you to the frontiers of chemistry when you join one of the research teams in the department. All our programmes have a common chemistry core in the first two years, differing only in optional modules, which can be chosen from chemistry or non-chemistry courses. This provides a good measure of flexibility and choice for you during the first two years.The structure of Years One and Two of this programme is identical to that of MChem Chemistry with Research in Industry. These first two years progress rapidly, with a mix of theory and practical modules to give you a solid grounding in the subject. By Year Three you will be a proficient chemist, and you will be able to extend your knowledge in the three traditional branches of chemistry and in the cross-disciplinary subject catalysis. In your final year, you will take a range of advanced core modules in inorganic, physical and organic chemistry and can tailor your studies to choose high-level modules in areas that interest you and that are related to our research areas. Chemical research is particularly important in Year Four and involves you conducting a significant project as a member of one of the research groups in the Department.This programme is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry for fully meeting the academic criteria for Chartered Chemist (CChem).This programme is available with either a Year in China or a Year Abroad. The Year in China offers undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. The Year Abroad offers students the opportunity to spend a full academic year studying at one of our partner universities around the world, following a mixture of culture and/or discipline-related modules. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China or a Year Abroad you will have the opportunity to apply after you arrive at Liverpool.
