About Chemistry at University of Sheffield

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. 

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. You'll also choose lecture modules from across organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry. Current topics range from catalysis and the chemistry of light to theoretical chemistry and technologies for sustainability.
