A large number of chemistry graduates work as analytical chemists and the demand for knowledgeable and skilled analysts is high in various industries (chemical, pharmaceutical, oil, steel, water, environmental, forensic, food, healthcare, biomedical). This programme has been specifically designed to allow you to update, extend and deepen your knowledge in analytical chemistry to enhance your career opportunities in industry, or as a preparation for further academic research.
In addition to common core modules (Graduate Science Research Methods and Subject Exploration), four specialised modules will provide you with opportunities to explore modern instrumental techniques for elemental and organic analysis with particular emphases on biomedical, environmental and pharmaceutical applications.
There are practical sessions for all taught topics which will enable you to gain valuable hands-on experience. Projects are selected according to professional and academic interests.
