Summary


- Develop the expertise you need to work as an analytical chemist, alongside renowned active researchers.

- Operate cutting-edge, industry-standard analytical lab instruments.

- Learn to obtain and interpret analytical information using a variety of products.

- Apply experimental design techniques and use statistical methods for data evaluation.

- Attain a solid grounding in laboratory quality management.

On this course, you'll advance your knowledge of analytical chemistry, and learn how it can be applied to different industries. You gain experience and understanding of key techniques in separation sciences, including liquid and gas chromatography, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, such as atomic absorption and emission, NMR and IR and how analytical technologies can be applied to solve complex biological problems.

**How you learn**

Throughout the course, you’ll undertake practical work and research in state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching laboratories which prepare you for industry. Our researchers are renowned specialists in analytical chemistry — and are active in their field. This provides you with not only the day-to-day experience needed for employment in the field, but with useful contacts.

You gain experience and understanding of key techniques in separation sciences, including liquid and gas chromatography, and atomic and molecular spectroscopy, such as atomic absorption and emission, NMR and IR. Modules may include Forensic Drug Analysis, Innovations in Analytical Science and Advanced Laboratory and Research Methods.

**You learn through**

- lectures and seminars

- a programme of laboratory classes

- full semester research project

**Applied learning**

**Laboratory experience and research project**

To supplement the classroom activities there is a programme of laboratory classes. Your laboratory work is carried out in our teaching laboratories which are extensively equipped with the latest models of analytical instruments, such as HPLCs and GCs. This is supplemented by access to our research facilities where you have access to more sophisticated equipment, such as NMR and a suite of various types of mass spectrometers.

You will have the opportunity to conduct a semester-long investigative research project within the biomedical field. This work will take place in cutting-edge, industry-standard laboratories and teaching labs under the supervision of world-renowned active research staff.

This work will be aligned with the current research interests of an academic member of staff within our specialist Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre. The project will include a critical review of the literature relevant to your research project, the development of a project proposal, design of research methods and the analysis, presentation and interpretation of experimental data.
