Program overview

Key reasons to attend University of Nottingham: Study in an inspirational school that has 95% of its research judged as internationally excellent or world leading (Research Excellence Framework, 2014) Take optional modules to complement your core chemistry modules Accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry Transfer between the BSc Chemistry, MSci Chemistry, MSci Chemistry with an International Study Year or MSci Chemistry with a Year in Industry courses is possible up to the end of semester two in year one. Student support You will be assigned a personal tutor who will support you through your studies and help you make the most of the opportunities available at Nottingham. Your personal tutor is your first port of call in the school and they will take an interest in your personal and academic development, offering you help, encouragement and guidance. ChemSoc is the student-run society that organises visits by industrial speakers and promotes social events throughout the year. Members of ChemSoc typically mentor year one students during their first year. Research in the School of Chemistry University of Nottingham staff's success as teachers of chemistry owes much to its ability to include ground-breaking research results in its teaching curriculum. The School of Chemistry maintains a vigorous, competitive research portfolio and sustains international excellence within the core-chemistry areas and in the interdisciplinary research environment at the interfaces with biomedical science, physics and engineering. 60% in first and second years to progress to a year abroad 55% in second year to progress to the placement year 55% in second year to progress to the MSci In addition, students must have secured a year-long placement at a partner university overseas for year three of MSci Chemistry with an International Study Year F103 or a year-long industrial placement for year three of MSci Chemistry with a Year in Industry F105.

Career opportunities

You will gain exceptional training in modern conceptual and practical chemistry, and you will develop your critical thinking, problem-solving and time-management skills. If you opt for the MSci Chemistry degree, part of your final year will involve you joining a research group in the School to work on a project at the cutting edge of research in chemistry. You will develop into a self-motivated and independent researcher; attributes that are essential for a research career in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries or for postgraduate research in the chemical sciences. Former graduates are also employed in professions outside the chemical industry including those in finance, education, marketing, and the media.
