About this course

  • The first and second years of this course are identical to the standard MSci in Chemical Physics (F322).
  • The main feature of this course is that the third year is spent as a paid employee in the labs of a major company. During this year, you will become an expert scientist and develop important transferable skills. You will also study a small number of academic units through distance learning, making the transition between university and placement as smooth as possible.
  • You will return to Bristol in your fourth year and do a mixture of physics and chemistry courses, plus a small research project.
  • The course is accredited by the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
