Our courses

As well as our BSc courses, you can choose a four-year MChem with options for a year in industry, abroad or at York. The courses are designed to be flexible, so you can easily transfer between them after you start.

If you choose to take a year in industry, you'll spend your final year working on a research project with an external organisation. You'll maintain close contact with your supervisor at York, who can offer support and advice on your project.

All our courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
