What is Bachelor of Science (Hons) Chemical Science?

This is a full-time course of four years duration, with students graduating with a BSc (hons). The course encapsulates the core disciplines of chemistry (organic, inorganic and physical), in addition to specialised topics such as medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and analytical chemistry. To ensure our graduates are equipped with the skills necessary for industry, modules in pharmaceutical processes, health and safety, and pharmaceutical regulations are also taken. The programme has a significant practical component, with small laboratory classes (max 16 students) and access to state of the art instrumentation, a six month Erasmus placement, and a final year research project. Our graduates find employment in a range of industries including pharmaceutical and biotech, state laboratories, or pursue further studies either at MSc or PhD level.
