Chemistry Advanced Project (MChem) (F1140)

60 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Autumn and spring teaching

For this advanced project, you undertake a piece of original research in an area at the forefront of chemistry. After consultation with a member of faculty, you undertake research on a topic of your choice.

An individual project will usually involve the use of experimental/computational procedures to investigate a specific chemical/biological problem.
Experimental strategies will be designed and executed followed by data collection and analysis.
The data may be generated using a combination of computation and/or laboratory experiments.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 600 hours of work. This breaks down into about 55 hours of contact time and about 545 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, we are constantly looking to improve and enhance our courses. There may be changes to modules in response to student demand or feedback, changes to staff expertise or updates to our curriculum. We may also need to make changes in response to COVID-19. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
