Program overview

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 University of Nottingham's course content has been tailored to produce graduates with an excellent practical and theoretical knowledge of synthetic and analytical chemistry. The modules making up the course are given by members of the Schools of Chemistry and Life Sciences. Transfer between the BSc Medicinal and Biological Chemistry, MSci Medicinal and Biological Chemistry or MSci Medicinal and Biological Chemistry with an Assessed 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's success as teachers of chemistry owes much to its ability to include ground-breaking research results in our 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. Student profile "My degree gives me the opportunity to study a variety of topics in biochemistry and pharmacology all relating to medicinal chemistry but without restricting the amount of other areas in chemistry I am exposed to. One of the highlights has to be the module in third year which is co-run with GlaxoSmithKline. This gave me a real insight into how medicinal chemistry works in an industrial environment." Jamie Cadge, MSci Medicinal and Biological Chemistry * Progression requirements In order to remain on the MSci Chemistry F101, BSc Chemistry F100, MSci Chemistry with an International Study Year F103 or MSci Chemistry with a Year in Industry F105 degrees students must meet the progression requirements shown below at the end of year two. 60% in first and second years to progress to 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.

You are guaranteed a place on selected undergraduate courses if all progression requirements are met. Science with Foundation Year Home, EU and international students If you have achieved high grades in your A levels (or equivalent qualifications) but do not meet the current subject entry requirements for direct entry to your chosen undergraduate course, you may be interested in our one-year science foundation programme. Applicants must also demonstrate good grades in previous relevant science subjects to apply. You are guaranteed a place on selected undergraduate courses if all progression requirements are met.

Career opportunities

The chemical industry continues to be an important industrial sector in the UK and the emerging materials and biotechnology sectors require trained chemists who can generate the new materials, products and knowledge that are needed in these areas. In addition to equipping you with theoretical and practical skills in chemistry, a degree in chemistry from Nottingham also demonstrates that you can think logically and critically, solve complex problems and manage your time effectively. Consequently, graduates may also be employed in professions including those in finance, education, marketing, and the media. Recent graduate destinations from the school include: Boots Cancer Research GlaxoSmithKline HSBC Intellectual Property Office NHS Unilever
