About the course
|September 2018 start||
This course is similar in structure to our MSc Chemistry, but has a larger proportion of research experience, and less directly taught material.
This weighting of components should appeal to students who are planning to use their studies as a stepping-stone to PhD study, or chemical research in industry.
Lectured modules allow for a large element of choice, allowing you to select from topics which span the breadth of chemistry, tailoring your studies to your own interests.
The extended research project is carried out across the full 12 months of the academic year, allowing you to really get deeply involved in your research area, and giving enough time to produce some academically significant results.
You'll select your project from a wide range of research areas across the department.
Assessment of the project is through a literature review of your research area, a 20,000-word dissertation, poster presentation, oral presentation and viva, as well as assessed performance during the project.
