Chemistry (MChem)

Why study Chemistry MChem at Warwick?

Our Chemistry MChem degree has the most widespread overview of the discipline with the maximum range of optional modules. In the third year you will use your experience of the themes and topics from years one and two to choose optional modules to tailor your degree to suit your interests. At this stage you could find out how Chemistry is tackling the energy crisis, explore scientific writing, examine case studies in drug discovery or discover how polymer synthesis can be used to design drug delivery systems.

In your fourth year, you'll have the opportunity to make a real difference, working on a single research project for the majority of the year. Our internationally recognised academic staff work at the cutting edge of research. Under their supervision, you might discover a significant improvement in solar cell technology, develop an electrochemical sensor for pharmaceutical analysis, a novel compound for cryopreservation of cells, a renewable polymer made from vegetables, an improved catalyst or an antibacterial agent extracted from plants. You will also choose optional modules to support your project and create a wide base of knowledge in other advanced areas of Chemistry.
