Chemistry at Oxford is a four-year course, leading to a Masters degree. All students are provided with a solid grounding in core topics, tools, and techniques, but you are also given significant flexibility to specialise in your own individual areas of interests, and even to venture into related disciplines (most obviously Biochemistry, but this is just one example).
Year four of the Oxford Chemistry course comprises full-time work with an established research group, culminating in a research report/dissertation.
Practical laboratory sessions, teaching essential experimental skills, are key aspects of this degree, and practical skills are assessed throughout the course. 'Labs' take place in the Department of Chemistry’s excellent facilities.
