For entry onto research degrees, the University usually requires a minimum of a 2:2 or equivalent in a relevant subject - chemistry, or chemistry related. However, individual circumstances such as previous experience and relevant work experience are also taken into account and applications are welcomed from interested applicants. If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
Months of entry
January, October, July, April
In the Department of Chemistry we offer a range of programmes that can be taken full time or part time.
Research projects can be carried out in virtually any area of chemistry as long as a suitable project and supervisor can be allocated meaning you can specialise in your own specific area of interest.
You will work under the guidance of an academic supervisor who is expert in that particular field, and alongside other members of the research group including academics, post-doctoral researchers as well as fellow postgraduate students.
