What will I learn?

The Department benefits from online subscriptions to a vast number of primary research journals and access to online databases to facilitate your literature searching. As part of your research training, you will be encouraged to attend conferences and present your results both within the Department and externally.

Overview

Join us and you’ll be based in a state-of-the art environment that has a strong focus on novel interdisciplinary research. This is carried out by a set of inter-related groups specialising in:

  • Energy and Catalysis
  • Materials Chemistry
  • Medicinal and Bio-nano Chemistry
  • Functional Interfaces
  • Theoretical and Computational Chemistry.

These groups carry out cutting-edge research in fast-moving fields such as nanotechnology and drug design. Often this involves collaboration with colleagues in other fields such as Biology, Materials Science and Physics.

As a postgraduate student you’ll be fully involved in our research activity. This will bring you into contact not only with new concepts, but also our prestigious partners, in academia, industry and research, worldwide.

Entry requirements

For international students

Applications are welcomed from well qualified graduates who would typically hold a UK first degree or equivalent in the first or 2:1 class, or a 2:2 class degree plus a Masters degree, in a relevant subject. Generally, the minimum qualifications for entry to MPhil or PhD study are a first or 2:1 class MChem degree, or their international equivalents, in Chemistry or a closely-related discipline. Applicants with good lower second class degrees may be accepted but each case is considered on its merits and depends on a suitable award being available.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
