Course content

Our Chemical Research programme gives you the opportunity to acquire key research skills while conducting a large individual research project in your chosen area of chemistry. It will provide comprehensive preparation for a research career in academia (PhD), as well as being a real asset if you wish to pursue alternative careers in industry or education.

You will receive training in a wide range of research techniques to enable you to build up a substantial profile of experimental skills so that you can tackle research projects with confidence. Typically this includes hands-on use of instrumentation for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, chromatographic and vacuum systems, the manipulation of air-sensitive materials, and training in state-of-the-art scientific computing and modelling.

You will take two optional modules (15 credits each) with the remaining 150 credits comprising a 48 week individual research project aligned to cutting edge research groups within the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. Optional taught modules include Advanced Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Advanced Biological Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Computational Chemistry and Drug Design and Development.
