    Course Summary

    The MSc degree in Chemistry which the University of Wolverhampton offers is a great follow-on from a Bachelor’s level degree in Chemistry or a closely related field. It is designed to give you a mastery of the field of chemistry overall, as well as allowing you to specialise I one or more commercially or academically relevant areas. You’ll learn to plan, carry out and analyse research in the field, and to adapt standard methodologies to unusual problems.

    As a part of this degree you’ll work closely with representatives for many local and regional companies who regularly hire skilled chemistry graduates, including the pharmaceutical industry.

    You’ll study in a brand new £25 million science facility which features state of the art equipment and a highly specialised faculty. You’ll learn not just the academic appreciation for the field but the practical laboratory skills which will prepare you for high level employment or the pursuit of a research degree when you graduate.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over 12 months at full time. The core of the program is your MSc research project, worth a full 120 credits. There are no other ‘core’ modules, and the remaining 60 credits of the course must be selected from the list of modules below.

    Modules Include:

    • Advanced Topics in Organic Chemistry
    • Advanced Topics in Inorganic Chemistry
    • Advanced Topics in Physical Chemistry
    • Advanced Topics in Chemical Analysis

    By the time you’ve graduated, you’ll have demonstrated the best standards in laboratory skills and chemical testing techniques. You’ll have a high level of IT skills, and be able to apply critical thinking and the scientific method to both academic and practical problems consistently and logically. You’ll have developed the ability to operate without close supervision, and will have taken the lead in planning, researching and presenting an in-depth, Master’s level research project.

    Learning And Teaching

    Wolverhampton’s teaching methods vary depending on the subject matter being presented, but typically include lectures, skills workshops and blended learning experiences at a minimum. You’ll also do a great deal of reading, study and revision, either individually or in small groups.

    Employability skills will be included at every stage of your education. You’ll also gain a wide range of practical laboratory skills, which will be vital in nearly any roles you might pursue, either in academia or industry.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree is an excellent preparation for a career, as the chemical industry is one of the largest contributors to the UK’s economy. Skilled graduates who can apply chemical skills to practical situations and problems are very much in demand in a range of chemically-related industries as well, including chemical engineering and pharmaceuticals.

    Within these industries, more than 95% of the companies are SMEs, so there is a large amount of career mobility and a high demand for more and more graduates as these industries expand.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 1 year MSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned a 2:2 undergraduate degree or better, or the international equivalent. The full list of qualifications which are accepted can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.5 overall would qualify, for example.
