Advance your knowledge of Chemistry in Liverpool

The Department of Chemistry offers the following taught Masters programme:

MSc in Advanced Chemical Sciences

This MSc aims to provide students who have already studied chemistry to the level equivalent to a good UK BSc (Hons) with the necessary additional skills and depth of knowledge to become professional chemists.

Students take 90 credits of advanced chemistry modules in Semesters 1 and 2, chosen from a wide range of topics and studying alongside our Integrated Master's MChem students.  Module topics range from core physical, inorganic and organic chemistry to specialist cutting-edge research areas and choices can be made to suit individual skills and interests. Most modules offered are at M-level although up to 30 credits at level 3 can be taken.

Alongside these taught modules in Semesters 1 and 2, students start to gain relevant research skills by taking a common 30 credit module, PGSC003 Introduction to Research, tailored to suit their particular background and research area.

During the summer, students undertake a substantial 60 credit research project PGSC004, working in an active research group.
