MChem Chemistry is a four-year integrated Masters programme leading to a level 7 qualification. You will gain a thorough grounding in all aspects of chemistry and carry out two separate research projects in addition to a full training in modern laboratory methods. You can choose from a wide range of specialised optional modules in the fourth year.
Chemistry at Salford integrates the core branches of organic, physical, inorganic and analytical chemistry in a package that meets the needs of employers for highly skilled chemists across the range of modern chemical industries.
With an emphasis on integrating your understanding of concepts and applying laboratory skills to find answers to current problems, you will appreciate how chemistry and its applications can transform the world we live in. You will gain experience in aspects of sustainable chemistry, a vital area of the modern chemicals industry, also known as ‘green’ chemistry.
At the University of Salford we pride ourselves on our research and have recently invested extensively in our facilities to ensure that our students are able to complete research projects that are exciting and inspiring, contributing useful findings to the field. Examples of research areas that you can explore include: nanotechnology, drug design and repurposing, cancer and antimicrobial research, natural products, biomarkers, analytical detection of volatiles, mass spectrometry, computational studies, skin modelling, environmental assessment, pollution and remediation, toxicology and much more.
Chemistry is one of the most versatile scientific disciplines and opportunities in the field continue to grow and develop. Our chemistry students are curious to know more about our world – how it works as well as having a thirst for new ideas about how to improve everyday lives. This course is for you if you have an inquiring mind and a need to ‘experiment’ and enjoy the laboratory.

In year one you will build your foundation in core areas of chemistry. In year two you will develop chemistry-based analytical skills and decide if you want to follow the Chemistry or the Chemistry with Environmental Chemistry route. At the end of year two, you can undertake an optional year away from University on an appropriate placement, which you arrange with our support. After the placement, which in some cases may be salaried, you return to complete your final year, making it a five year course overall. In the third year, emphasis will be placed upon chemical research and highlighting new developments in the field of chemistry. In your final year, you can choose from a wide range of specialised optional modules.
