About Chemistry at University of Sheffield

Securing a place to complete 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, by giving you a significant amount of independent research experience at postgraduate level, with access to state-of-the-art facilities in a Russell Group university.

You'll spend two-thirds of your time on this course working on your own research project as part of a team of professional scientists. There are also more than 20 different optional lecture topics for you to choose from across organic, inorganic and physical chemistry.

You'll have access to a number of our multimillion-pound research labs, including the Lord Porter Laser Laboratory, which has three different laser stations, and our Soft Matter Analytical Laboratory, where scientists can study samples that are 100 times smaller than a human hair.

Modules

For most of this course, you will be working full-time as a chemistry researcher on your own independent research project. You will get to choose a topic that you're interested in, be assigned an academic supervisor who specialises in your area and work in their laboratory as part of a team of scientists.

There are also two lecture modules, and each one allows you to pick the topics that most interest you. Current topics range from metals in medicine and enzyme catalysis, to graph theory and quantum chemistry, to polymer architectures and nanochemistry.
