What will I learn?

The research degree provides students training in a particular subject area through independent investigation, study and experimental work, culminating in the submission of a thesis on the research undertaken. A supervisor or supervisors will be appointed for each candidate. They are required to attend appropriate lectures and sit for written examinations.

Coursework:

Candidates pursuing Master of Science in Chemistry by research are required to attend and pass examinations in a minimum of three modules:

  • CM5198 Graduate Seminar Module in Chemistry
  • 2 Level 5000 modules

Candidates are allowed to take modules offered by other departments subject to the approval from their thesis supervisor (s) and/or department (s). These modules are to be chosen in consultation with their thesis supervisor (s) and/or department (s). All modules taken by the candidates will be included in the CAP computation, unless otherwise indicated by the candidate.

Thesis

Candidates must submit, through the supervisor (s) and the Head of Department, their theses for examination within the maximum period of their candidature.
