MChem (Hons) Chemistry, Green Principles and Sustainable Processes with a year in industry

University of York

Chemistry is often referred to as the 'central science'. It covers topics as diverse as quantum mechanics and the study of atomic particles, to the molecular nature of biological systems and the Human Genome Project.

This degree will give you a strong grounding in fundamental chemistry. You'll also develop specialist knowledge of green chemistry, which is increasingly important in industry as regulations tighten and chemical resources become harder to find.

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, assuring the quality of our teaching. This course meets the academic criteria for Chartered Chemist (CChem) status.

Year in industry

Spend a year working on a research project with chemical companies based in the UK and abroad.

You'll be assessed in several different ways, depending on the modules you study. Forms of assessment include:

  • examinations
  • practical work
  • assessed workshops
  • presentations
