    The MSci in Chemistry is the primary study programme in the Chemistry department at Imperial College. It is designed to produce chemists of the highest calibre, who are capable of pursuing a career in the chemical sciences. 
    These MSci courses help many graduates look towards careers elsewhere in Europe as well as the UK. As European integration progresses, there are growing opportunities for scientists with the right experience, such as having worked in another European country. In both courses, you will attain both technical and non-technical fluency in another European language.

    Year in Industry The „Chemistry with a Year in Industry‟ F105 course offers an alternative to a gap year between school and university. It allows you to gain experience at a level more appropriate to a graduate. Many students find that using chemistry in an industrial context gives them greater experience and motivation during their final year studies. They also find this gives them confidence as they choose their career direction. This course is one year longer than its counterpart without the year in industry, but its content is otherwise identical. This contrasts strongly with many „...with study in Industry‟ courses offered by other Universities which are 4 years in duration and so have a reduced core chemistry content to accommodate the time spent in Industry. For our course, the penultimate year is spent in industry. Year in Industry placements are applied for in the third year. Most companies will look for at least a 2:1 performance on the course to date as an interview prerequisite. We have an extensive list of firms willing to accept students, some of them in continental Europe; alternatively, in consultation with the department, you may make arrangements with another suitable company. In either case, the work must be predominantly related to chemical research, at an appropriately challenging, professional level. The placement is normally for 12 months (e.g. September to August). During this year you receive an industrial salary, and may still be eligible for a (reduced) student loan; you remain registered as an Imperial student and pay half fees. You are assigned an academic supervisor, by the Department, and an industrial supervisor, by your employer. Your Industrial Supervisor will primarily guide your technical work, and manage your performance on a daily basis. The Departmental Supervisor will provide an alternative point of contact for advice and assistance during the year, maintaining e-mail contact throughout, and visiting at least once. The Company generally provides particular assistance with local orientation, and in some cases may provide or secure accommodation etc. However, in general, you will need to finalise contractual arrangements, accommodation, insurance, College registration, and if, travelling abroad, visa/national registration/health card issues, yourself, seeking advice from your supervisors, the Department, and the Company, as needed. Towards the start of the placement, you should discuss arrangements for the project and the plan for the work, established with your Industrial Supervisor, with your Academic Supervisor to ensure that it is appropriate for the Year in Industry qualification. You will be bound by confidentiality and other terms by your contract of employment; a further confidentiality agreement (CDA) may be necessary, in some cases, to enable full technical discussions with your Academic Supervisor. By the end of the year, you will be required to draw up a full scientific report on the work that you have carried out according to similar criteria applied to final year project reports. The onsite visit by your Departmental Supervisor will provide an opportunity for you to make a ~30 min oral presentation of your work to both supervisors (and any other Industrial personnel). The Industrial and Departmental supervisors will discuss and assess your performance during the year; both will mark your final report against the relevant guidelines. The numerical marks do not count towards your eventual degree class; rather, a threshold level of achievement needs to be attained as a condition for passing the year; failure results in the designation „...with a year in Industry‟ being dropped and formal transfer to the F103 degree. You return to Imperial for your final year.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Candidates should normally offer three A levels at A grade: chemistry, mathematics and one other (not general studies). We will also consider candidates with equivalent qualifications including:  International Baccalaureate, for which we require chemistry HL at grade 7, mathematics HL at grade 6 and at least 38 points overall.  Scottish Advanced Highers, which we consider equivalent to English/Welsh A levels. For all courses, passes are required in English, mathematics and physics or combined science at GCSE, typically grade B or better (grade B for English).
