Course content

An international leader in research, the School of Chemistry offers an exciting programme aimed at students who wish to focus primarily on undertaking a research-based masters-level qualification. This one year course is designed for those students wishing to develop their chemistry research skills.


The programme is ideal for students who wish to experience what it is like to do a PhD without the requirement to undertake three years of study. Students receive close support and guidance from two academic supervisors within the school. Supervisors meet regularly with students, making sure that they are fully involved in the school's leading research community.
The School of Chemistry's research portfolio covers inorganic and materials, organic and biological, and physical and theoretical chemistry, and their interfaces with physics, biology, biomedical sciences, materials, nanosciences and engineering. 85 per cent of its research was rated as internationally excellent or world-leading in the latest Research Assessment Exercise, placing the school second in the national rankings.
