The focus is on practical skills, in both a laboratory environment and through literature searching, as well as writing skills. Structure Determination and Analytical Techniques Explore structure determination and analytical techniques of x-ray diffraction, mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy and quality assurance. The emphasis is on enhancing theoretical knowledge and developing problem solving skills. Topics in Materials Chemistry Discover exciting, cutting-edge research topics of rings, chains and clusters, structure and applications of fullerenes and nanotubes. You'll also explore large molecules in polymers, dendrimers and supramolecular systems. The emphasis is on enhancing theoretical knowledge and developing problem solving skills. Second year * Modules are subject to availability Core modules Topics in Organic and Inorganic Chemistry Learn about the role of metals in organic synthesis, explore concerted cycloaddition reactions and homogeneous catalysis, and discover the role of inorganic compounds in biological systems. The emphasis is on enhancing theoretical knowledge and developing problem solving skills. Advanced Colloid Science This module is focused on exciting, cutting-edge topics of physical chemistry in terms of polymers, surfactants and colloids. The emphasis is on enhancing theoretical knowledge and developing problem solving skills. Work-based Project You'll select a topic, most likely related to your work activities and in the same area as the prior literature review, and search the literature for background, perform practical work to acquire results, and write up the project in a report and compile a PowerPoint presentation.

I came up on the train a day later and signed everything there and then because it just felt right to be here. I felt that this is where I should be". Eden Rose Watch Video More about this course This blended-learning programme is intended as a top-up route to a BSc degree for those students that have successfully completed the FdSc Chemical Sciences programme. This 2 year part-time programme is completed through workshops, online resources, direct reading and independent research. Chemistry students at Hull work closely with our world-class researchers and enjoy access to state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, making for a truly outstanding learning experience. Chemistry here is taught by some of the leaders in the field, including members of the pioneering liquid crystal display (LCD) research team, now spearheading the next generation of display technology – Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs). The programme covers an exciting and diverse array of subjects. You gain a broad, balanced knowledge of the wide array of subjects that make up modern chemistry, and the opportunity to extend that knowledge into specialised and cutting-edge areas of the discipline.

Entry requirements This programme is typically intended as a top-up route to a BSc degree for those students that have successfully completed the FdSc Chemical Sciences programme. International students Fees and funding Home/EU (part-time): £1,540 (20 credits), £4,625 (60 credits), £6,165 (80 credits) Part-time fees are charged pro-rata to the full-time fee, according to the number of credits being studied. Future Prospects We are ranked among the top 10 universities nationally for the job prospects of our chemistry graduates. This, alongside the national shortage of suitably qualified chemists in industry, puts our graduates in a strong position. Some use their chemistry and their communication skills to become teachers in universities, schools and colleges. Others use their knowledge and skills to follow research careers in universities, industry, government laboratories and research institutes. From your training as a scientist, your analytical and problem-solving skills, experience in research, excellent training in fundamental scientific principles as well as practical, organisational and computing skills will make you highly sought after by employers from a wide range of industries. Our links with employers through our Institute for Chemistry in Industry have enabled many Hull graduates to gain senior positions in their chosen field. Many of our graduates go into successful careers with employers such as BP, RB (Reckitt Benckiser), Croda International, Tata Steel, and Smith & Nephew to name a few. Many students have also stayed on for higher degrees both at masters and PhD level.
