This MChem programme with a year in industry offers you the opportunity of gaining industrial experience in any field of biological and medicinal chemistry – a valuable asset with future employers. There is also the bonus that you receive payment during your industrial year.
For the first two years of study you will carry out a normal biological and medicinal chemistry degree programme. You will need above average marks during these two years to stay on the Year in Industry course. However, good marks are not the only requirement: just as important are commitment and communication skills.
Today, chemists play essential roles in the quest to understand biological systems. For example, they are involved in finding out precisely how the different types of biomolecules found in our bodies and in microbes function.

Completion of a Year in Industry programme will ensure you graduate with relevant work experience, putting you one step ahead of other students. This exciting degree programme provides you with this opportunity.
There is no greater asset in today’s competitive job market than relevant work experience. A Year in Industry will give you first-hand knowledge of not only the mechanics of how your chosen field operates but it will also greatly improve your chances of progressing within that sector as you seal valuable contacts and insight. These courses will also enhance your studies as theory is transformed into reality in a context governed by very real, time and financial constraints.
We offer excellent academic and student support services, and in the latest set of employment figures, 88% of our undergraduates, who were available for work, found work or study within six months of leaving.
Our MChem and BSc courses in Chemistry are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) as satisfying the academic requirements for Chartered Chemists (CChem) for graduates with first or second class honours degrees. More details about this can be found here. Our Forensic and Investigative Chemistry degree is accredited by the Forensic Science Society. Furthermore, all of our Chemical Physics degrees are recognised by the Institute of Physics.
