First or second class honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.
Months of entry
January, October, April
We offer programmes leading to a PhD degree in four classical divisions of chemistry: inorganic, organic, physical and computational. While the students would be formally associated with one of these divisions, the research carried out in our Department is interdisciplinary. The current focus areas are: Catalysis and Synthesis, Energy, Environment and Health, Materials, and Sustainability. Each focus group is composed of members of staff that approach these topics from very different points of view, thus allowing our students to understand fully the context of their research.
For further information on the programme, along with guidance on how to apply, please visit the programme webpage at:
Research in the Department spans all sub-disciplines, from theoretical physical chemistry to biological and synthetic chemistry and antibody engineering. Major themes that are represented include electrochemistry, polymer chemistry, studies of Langmuir-Blodgett films, organometallic, and main group chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, asymmetric synthesis, catalysis and computational chemistry.
Information for international students
Language requirement: IELTS 6.5 (at least 6.0 in each of the four components) or equivalent. Applicants narrowly missing this requirement may be eligible for a pre-sessional English course or a combined offer (to include a pre-sessional English course and master’s degree).
