Upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject (e.g. chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biomedical sciences, engineering). Relevant experience will be considered if the applicant does not meet the standard entry requirements.
Months of entry
On the MSc Magnetic Resonance masters degree you will gain a profound understanding of the physical principles underlying magnetic resonance. You will learn about the quantum mechanics of spin, and how to apply it to answer important questions in chemistry, biology, and medicine. It is a fascinating field of study, linking together fundamental physics and real-world applications that make a real difference - from new methods to diagnose cancer to new ways to protect the environment through NMR of porous materials such as soil and rocks.
You will be studying at a University with a global reputation for excellence in magnetic resonance research. Our academics' world-leading contributions include the design of NMR pulse methods that are in daily use in every NMR spectrometer around the globe; the discovery of nuclear spin quantum states with exceptionally long life times (up to hours); as well as miniaturised NMR detectors that allow us to study extremely small samples ("Lab-on-a-chip").
Magnetic resonance methods harness the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei and electrons contained in ordinary matter to study a wide range of chemical, physical, and biological phenomena. They empower chemistry through nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and medical diagnostics through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Information for international students
