Course summary

The aim of UCLan’s Master of Science in Synthetic Organic Chemistry course is to provide an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying modern aspects of organic chemistry.

This course blends a theoretical knowledge of advanced concepts in organic synthesis and spectroscopic analysis with industrial applications but, unlike many master’s level courses of this type, does not focus students on one application of organic chemistry e.g., medicinal chemistry. Instead it provides training, knowledge and a perspective of a broad range of chemical industries reliant upon organic chemistry.

Learning Environment and Assessment

The modules are assessed by both coursework and examination. To ensure that you do not have an excessive amount of assessment at any one time, the coursework assessment will take place uniformly throughout the course.

Opportunities

To enhance your work experience, you will have an opportunity to undertake a professional placement as part your MSc. This will extend your study time by six to twelve months depending on the length of the placement.

You are responsible for finding your own placement. We will support you in preparation for this with the Faculty Placement Team and UCLan Careers, who can help you plan and develop your CV and applications and have practice interviews.
