Course content

Securing a place on a chemistry PhD at a top institution, or joining a research and development lab in industry, is a competitive process. This masters course is designed to help you stand out. You'll gain research experience at postgraduate level and learn advanced lab techniques in our state-of-the-art facilities.

Course description

For most of this one-year course, you will be working full-time as a chemistry researcher on your own research project. You’ll get to choose a topic that you're interested in, be assigned an academic supervisor who specialises in that area and work in their laboratory as part of a team of scientists. Some students' projects even lead to publications in academic journals.

We'll teach you advanced lab techniques and train you to use state-of-the-art chemistry equipment. Two lecture modules will help you further develop your chemistry expertise. Each one allows you to pick the topics that most interest you from a range of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry subjects.
