Course Summary

Discoveries in chemistry research can improve lives and solve problems of global importance. Our Chemistry MRes enables you to join a team of researchers aiming to address issues from environmental degradation to age-related illness, exploring the ways science can make peoples’ lives better.

Our researchers are experts in their field, with strengths in medicinal, environmental, materials and analytical chemistry research. You will be attached to one or more of our research groups, working alongside postdoctoral and other postgraduate researchers with shared interests.

Working with your supervisor, you’ll design and undertake a substantial research project which provides a real intellectual challenge and shows the relevance of scientific research to industry. You’ll demonstrate your creativity and initiative, and gain advanced knowledge of techniques such as chromatography spectroscopy and electroanalysis, as you build confidence and independence as a researcher.

Our journal club provides opportunities to explore and evaluate current scientific journal articles through presentations from guest speakers and student-led discussion.

Course structure

The Chemistry MRes is typically completed full-time in one year, but can be taken part-time over two years. The course is structured to include a significant research component which you will undertake throughout the course. In addition, a series of supporting taught modules further enrich your learning.

To be awarded the MRes, you must obtain 180 M-level credits, 40 credits from taught and subject-specific modules and 140 credits through the completion of the research project.

Careers

Our graduates have been awarded PhD studentships at top UK universities and now work for companies including GlaxoSmithKline, Southern Water and Novartis.

Students can exit with PGDip & PGCert.
