Join a University ranked #1 in the UK for Chemistry research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning (UK top ten for Chemistry, Guardian University Guide 2022).

Guided by world-class experts, you will discover how chemistry shapes the world around us and develop your knowledge to prepare you to tackle some of the world’s biggest problems, from climate change to drug discovery.

Our MSci Chemistry with Study Abroad course is suited to you if you want to deepen your understanding of the subject and broaden your experience by studying chemistry at an overseas university during your third year.

You will spend your third year studying abroad in the chemistry department of an English-speaking university before returning to Bristol for your final year. We currently have exchange links with universities in the US, Canada, Singapore, Japan and Australia. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.

Our students have used their final year projects to work on vital challenges in chemistry: they have helped to discover new catalysts that have the potential to reduce environmental impacts of major chemical processes, identified and measured the sources of pollutants in our atmosphere, and engaged in organic chemistry projects related to drug discovery.

Our alumni have established careers with a wide range of employers, including Teach First, GlaxoSmithKline, Deloitte LLP and HM Revenue and Customs.

This course is accredited by the following organisations
