Upper second class undergraduate or Masters degree in Chemistry, or an equivalent degree in a related discipline such as Physics or Chemical Engineering, appropriate to the proposed research project
Months of entry
Our Masters by research programme provides the opportunity to undertake a short, in depth independent research project in one of our research groups. It will equip you for more sustained and original work at the doctoral level or for advanced-level applied research positions. This degree will develop relevant analytical and technical skills, together with transferable skills related to research, communication, problem solving, and independent working.
For information on possible projects, and for further details of our specific research interests, please see our Departmental website.
Research in the Department is broadly structured into a series of sub-disciplines or themes, including: • A wide range of synthetic chemistry • Chemical theory and computation • Analytical chemistry and spectroscopy • Chemical biology • Materials Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, individual topics often span several research themes. Potential areas of application include, but are not limited to: healthcare, energy, pharmaceuticals, and materials development. Prospective students may also suggest projects that are variations of our topics.
