We have a vibrant, research-active community, promoting and supporting research work of the highest quality in the traditional areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, complemented by other multidisciplinary chemistry programmes.

A strong commitment

There is a strong commitment to maintaining a mutually supportive culture between the research and postgraduate community and our wide-ranging undergraduate teaching programme of excellent reputation.

Full-time and part-time Masters and Diploma qualifications

In addition to excellent opportunities in research leading to Masters and PhD degrees, the school offers a number of other postgraduate courses including full-time and part-time Masters and Diploma qualification, some of which are funded.

What will a postgraduate degree involve, and what level of knowledge and skills do we anticipate from prospective students?

Postgraduate studies are advanced programmes that enable you to specialise in a sub-discipline of the subject you have already studied at undergraduate or Masters level.


For all our postgraduate programmes it is important that applicants have a sound background in chemistry. Applicants will need to have studied inorganic, organic and physical chemistry as part of their undergraduate or Masters degree, or have equivalent industrial experience. A good understanding of these areas is essential and the ability to communicate this knowledge, in writing and orally, will be necessary.

Aims of studying a research degree

We also expect our students to have a good grasp of mathematical concepts used in chemistry. The aims of studying a research degree are to establish yourself as an independent researcher, and to develop the teaching skills necessary to effectively communicate complex concepts and theories to others. Students who undertake a research degree are expected to be able to read and understand academic research papers.
