Months of entry
Our Chemical Research programme gives you the opportunity to acquire key research skills while conducting a large individual project in your chosen area of chemistry. It will provide comprehensive preparation for a research career in academia, 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.
As well as completing a large-scale research project students will enrol for a small number of taught modules, consisting of lectures and seminars.
