Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

Chemistry is often called the central science, connecting mathematics, physics, biology and medicine. Queen Mary offers highly regarded training in both theoretical and practical chemistry. You’ll develop an advanced scientific understanding of the physical and chemical properties of matter, including the nature of atoms and molecules, their structure and composition, their reactions and the ways they are used in products and materials. In your first year you’ll study the fundamentals of organic and inorganic chemistry, spectroscopy and states of matter. Later you’ll study physical and quantum chemistry, computational chemistry and organic synthesis. Chemistry is a practical subject and you’ll develop advanced skills through frequent lab work. During your final year you’ll conduct your own research project, either laboratory- or literature-based. Choose your own pathway through this degree — add a year in industry or studying abroad, or carry out an additional year of advanced study to graduate with an MSci.
