MSc in Chemistry with Scientific Writing

Chemistry with scientific writing - main

Why Chemistry with Scientific Writing?

How to communicate science is a challenging topic; you may need to explain the structure of a leaf to a seven-year-old one day, and report the very latest research to the world via scientific journals the next. Both rely not only on subject knowledge but also the ability to effectively communicate often complex scientific concepts to others. This MSc aims to give you the English Language skills necessary to communicate science and to effectively apply these skills in a range of scenarios.
