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.
During the course you’ll receive close support and guidance from one or more academic supervisors within the school. The research projects can be developed by you and your supervisors. You’ll join an active research group where you’ll receive training in advanced techniques, and use of state-of-the art equipment.
Recent past projects include:
- Chemical Biology of Cancer Metabolism: Developing Molecular Tools
- Green Approaches to the Manufacturing of Anti-Malarial Drugs
- Hydrogen Electrochemistry in Unconventional Settings
You will undertake an original research project worth 120 credits. You’ll then study 60 credits of optional taught modules which will reflect our research areas. These currently include areas such as Biological and Medicinal Chemistry, Green and Sustainable Chemistry, Materials, Molecular Bonding and Spectroscopy, and Synthesis and Catalysis.
