MChem Chemistry courses

These courses offer a more detailed knowledge and thorough experience of the subject, required for pursuing a professional career in chemistry.

For the first two years, there are commonalities between taught material in our MChem and BSc degrees, offering the maximum opportunity to move between schemes (subject to academic performance).

Both schemes offer the opportunity of a year in industry and the MChem scheme additionally offers the chance to spend a year in an overseas university research laboratory.

It not only gave me the experience of actually working in the industry but meant that when I completed my studies at Cardiff, I didn't have to look too far to find my first full time employment.
