Course summary

Our MSc Synthetic and Organic Chemistry course provides training, knowledge and a perspective of a broad range of chemical industries reliant upon organic chemistry.

Chemistry provides us with an important understanding of our world and how it works. Through understanding the chemistry of materials, we can design and manufacture drugs to fight diseases; computer chips to enhance communication; fuels for transportation; fertilisers to grow abundant food; plastics to package food and replace worn body parts; and much, much more.

Chemistry also helps us to comprehend the nature of our environment, our universe and ourselves. It is pivotal in our understanding of the treatment of diseases such as cancer and AIDS, and provides vital information about issues such as global warming, ozone depletion and acid rain.

This course blends a theoretical knowledge of advanced concepts in organic synthesis and spectroscopic analysis with a focus on applying these skills in industry – so you’ll emerge with a broad range of skills and be equipped to succeed in roles within the chemicals sector and related industries, ranging from pharmaceuticals to micro-electronics.

Why study with us

  • Unlike many master’s level courses of this type, we don’t focus on one particular application of organic chemistry. Instead we give you broad perspectives across a range of chemical industries, maximising your career opportunities.
  • You’ll work with state-of-the-art equipment in modern laboratories. Our JB Firth Building gives you access to the latest analytical techniques to support practical investigations.
  • To enhance your work experience, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a professional placement in industry as part of your MSc course. This will extend your study time by six to twelve months (depending on the length of the placement).

Future careers

After achieving a postgraduate degree in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, the possibilities are almost endless and you’ll be ready for a career which makes a positive impact on society.
