About the Course

Bachelor of Science in Chemical AnalysisThe Level 7 Degree in Chemical Analysis provides a very hands-on practical skills based course which provides graduates with a broad range of highly sought-after capabilities. Industry has a current need for chemists trained in the application of modern, chemically based analytical techniques.

Indeed the demand for such expertise is expected to increase. To meet this need the course produces chemists with expertise in chemical, chromatographic and spectrophotometric analytical techniques. These chemists will be capable of performing analytical techniques/process development in a quality-conscious manner while also being able to participate in the design and validation of these methods and processes.

*Important Note
Degrees and modules within degrees can change over time. When determining suitability of an undergraduate qualification, applicants should in the first instance read the requirements for named curricular subjects, which can be found at the link below.


At the end of the BSc in Chemical Analysis, the student will have achieved an in-depth knowledge of chemical analysis, synthesis and characterization of compounds and the applied areas such as materials and environmental chemistry. For many graduates the BSc is a stepping stone to the BSc (Hons) in Applied Chemistry and, for an increasing number, far beyond.

Career Opportunities

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Analysis at IT TallaghtThe course will produce graduates with the requisite skills and knowledge to work as chemical analysts within the pharmaceutical, chemical, food and biotechnology industries, as well as local and national scientific agencies and research institutions. The 4 main areas of Chemistry (Organic, Inorganic, Physical and Analytical) are covered along with other very relevant modules covering applied topics (environmental chemistry, good laboratory practices and material science). All modules covered are important for potential employers as they give the graduates an in-depth knowledge of many topics in Chemistry.
