On our MSc you'll have the freedom to choose from 20 different optional lecture topics across organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. Current topics range from metals in medicine and enzyme catalysis, to graph theory and quantum chemistry, to polymer architectures and nanochemistry.
In the lab, our researchers will teach you advanced research skills, and you'll spend around one-third of your time working on your own research project. You'll choose the topic and you'll be based in one of our world-class research groups, developing skills and expertise that can help you stand out in the graduate job market.
We have state-of-the-art research laboratories and we're home to several multimillion pound research facilities. These facilities include the Lord Porter Laser Laboratory, which has three laser stations that can be used in studies ranging from energy transport in molecules and materials to artificial photosynthesis, and our Soft Matter Analytical Laboratory, where scientists can study samples that are 100 times smaller than a human hair.
