Course summary

Introduction

MSc Cosmetic Science is an applied science course designed for students who want a career in the cosmetics and personal care industries. The course focusses on the needs of those industries and their consumers.

These industries have expanded rapidly in recent years, as consumers have become more aware of the potential benefits of cosmetic products, and more critical of the way they are produced. In addition to subject-specific knowledge, the course enables students to develop the critical and analytical skills necessary to become cosmetic scientists.

Assessment methods

The following assessment methods are employed to support the integrated aims of the course outcomes: Time-constrained examination; Practical examination; Oral presentation (individual or group); Laboratory report; Project report; Master’s report; Master’s dissertation; Essay; and Reflective statement.

Career paths

Many graduates prefer to seek employment as soon as they have completed their undergraduate studies, and graduates from the MSc course (and BSc break point) go on to do a variety of roles within the industry. Some of the position’s graduates have gone on to include: New Product Development and Marketing Executive, Technical Product Manager, Laboratory and Quality Control Technician, International Regulatory Affairs Officer, Formulation Scientist, Application Technologist, Perfume Specialist, Regulatory Affairs Officer, Consumer Tester and Account Manager.
