Strwythur y cwrs

The MSc Advanced Chemistry is a full-time programme, which runs over one academic year.  You will study a total of 180 credits, 120 of which are taught and assessed through coursework and exams (the Diploma phase) followed by a 60 credit project (the Dissertation phase).

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2020/21 academic year. The final modules will be published by September 2020.

Semesters one and two of the programme each consist of a core module and the spring semester has a core practical module, (worth 30 credits in total). The remaining 90 credits  are chosen from a wide range of optional modules. The summer project is worth 60 credits. Students must pass the Diploma phase before being allowed to proceed to the Dissertation phase.

 

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

Semesters one and two of the programme each consist of a module of practical work and one other core module,(worth 30 credits in total), plus 30 credits of optional material chosen from a wide range of modules. The summer project is worth 60 credits. Students must pass the Diploma phase before being allowed to proceed to the Dissertation phase.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Students will attend lectures, participate in seminars, problem-solving workshops and tutorials, and carry out practical laboratory work. Students will also undertake self-directed literature-based research and a laboratory-based original research project that will lead to completion of a dissertation. Topics for the research project will normally be chosen from a list of options proposed by staff in areas of current research interest. The research project will consist of supervised independent study and will typically consist of laboratory or computational work.

The programme will be taught in the medium of English.
 

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Assessment

The taught modules within the programme are typically assessed through a final examination and the following in-course assessments:

  • Written reports;
  • Problem-based workshops and class tests;
  • Oral examination.

Those modules primarily involving independent study and research are assessed through the following:

  • Written dissertation (typically 6,000 to 10,000 words);
  • Oral presentation;
  • Oral examination.

Feedback

At the commencement of the programme the opportunity to receive feedback on initial knowledge and understanding will be provided through completion of online multiple-choice diagnostic tests within Learning Central. Students will receive written feedback on written assessments and oral presentations. General feedback on performance will be provided by personal tutors after initial diagnostic testing and following the examination periods.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

All students are allocated a Personal Tutor, for help and support with academic needs. Meetings are scheduled with the Personal Tutor at key points during the programme to discuss progress and provide academic guidance. Students may arrange to meet with the Personal Tutor on additional occasions, as needed. Modules will be supported through the Virtual Learning Environment where course related information and electronic documents will be located.

Students will be allocated an academic staff member as primary supervisor for the research project. A second supervisor/mentor will also be allocated to cover for periods when the primary supervisor is unavailable. Additional support may also be provided by research staff within the research group where the student is based.

A fydd angen unrhyw gyfarpar penodol arnaf I astudio’r cwrs hwn?

What the student should provide:
Students are expected to provide general items of stationery. If students choose to use portable computing equipment (e.g. notebooks, tablets, smart phones) they will need to provide these devices. The student should supply a laboratory coat. The School of Chemistry will provide non-prescription laboratory safety glasses, but students may choose to supply their own safety glasses.


What the University will provide:
The University will supply laboratory space, equipment and consumables required for taught modules and the research project. Hardware and software for control of instrumentation and specialist computation and data analysis will be provided. Students will have access to University libraries including physical books/journals and electronic resources. General computing facilities will be available, and for students bringing their own portable devices, wireless access to the University network is available at most locations within the University estate.
