Chemistry program structure

At undergraduate level you can study a BSc in chemistry over three or four years. Some universities offer a chemistry as an MSci, or MChem, which combines a bachelor’s and master’s course in one four or five year program.

You can study a master’s in chemistry as an MSc over one or two years If you already have a bachelor’s degree. Doctorate degrees are also available, and you can study a research based PhD which can take up to five years to complete.

Chemistry is a hugely wide ranging subject, with many different areas and specializations you can follow. Therefore, the content and structure of each program is likely to be different at each university.

Many programs will focus on the core areas of chemistry in the first year or two, and then allow more flexibility where you can choose the modules to tailor your program. The optional modules you can choose to study can cover a huge number of specializations including pharmacology, marine chemistry or medicinal chemistry.

Some of the main modules and areas of chemistry you can expect to study include:

  • Biochemistry
  • Mathematics for chemistry
  • Organic chemistry
  • Inorganic chemistry
  • Physical chemisty
  • Environmental chemistry
