Undergraduate study

Chemistry at Oxford is a four-year, integrated Masters course leading to an MChem (with honours). The course provides a high-level education in the subject, with sufficient flexibility to enable students to specialise in the areas of greatest interest to them and also to venture into overlapping scientific disciplines.

For the first three years of the course, students are taught through practical work, lectures, and small group classes and tutorials. The fourth year consists entirely of research, with students working on a project in one of the department’s research groups – these cover a wide range of research themes, including both pure and applied Chemistry.
