MSci Chemistry and Molecular Physics

You'll be taught by academic staff from the School of Chemistry and the School of Physics and Astronomy. They will feed your curiosity and develop your approach to independent learning. You may even recognise some of our staff from the popular Periodic Videos and Sixty Symbols YouTube channels.

This course focuses on the overlap between the established disciplines of chemistry and physics. In the first year, you will study introductory chemistry, physics and mathematics modules. You will take practical chemistry classes in our teaching laboratories. In years two and three you'll develop a more specialised and deeper understanding of chemistry and physics. Some of the topics you can study include:

The fourth year includes masters-level modules and a major research project. You will develop key communication and problem-solving skills. You can choose from a wide range of topics in chemistry for your research project, depending on your interests or career aspirations. You’ll join one of our research groups to work on your chosen project. We offer more than 100 research projects from 40 different research groups. You will benefit from the active research and latest insight of these groups, as well as state of the art facilities and equipment.

Our students have gone onto work in a variety of industries including chemistry, physics and pharmaceuticals. The University of Nottingham is the second-most targeted university in the UK by leading employers. (High Fliers' Graduate Market in 2022).
