“I gained extremely valuable skills in a wide range of instruments and equipment that undergraduates sometimes don’t get chance to work with at some other universities. This really enabled me to integrate easily into an experienced team in the workplace.” Katrina, Analytical Development Scientist at Catalent.

Core modules within this course include understanding inorganic, organic and physical chemistry and builds towards a research project in the final year in which you will be using the recent research literature to inform your studies.
