The MRes in Analytical Chemistry is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of students. It is particularly geared towards the analytical professionals seeking to refresh their knowledge of Analytical Chemistry, and to recent graduates in a wide range of sciences allied to chemistry including, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Forensic Science, and Physics.

Why study this course?

This course enables you to develop and further your knowledge of chemical analysis, with a range of core modules. You can expand your interests further by selecting module options and an analytical chemistry lead research project within one of our diverse range of internationally recognised research groups.

You'll study chromatography, spectroscopy, and spectroscopic methods in drugs analysis. You'll gain knowledge in advanced instrumentation and analysis covering special topics in metabonomics and metabolomics, high-throughput screening, drugs and pharmaceuticals in the environment, drugs in biological samples, and receptor activation.

Gain hands-on experience

As well as working and studying under the direction of world-leading pharmaceutical and medicinal science staff, you will gain hands-on experience of a variety of modern instrumentation including multi-nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry (NMR), mass spectrometry, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC).
