UCL (University College London)
The principal component of this degree is an intensive novel research project providing 'hands-on' training in methods and techniques at the cutting edge of scientific research. The programme is particularly suitable for those wishing to embark on an academic career, with a strong track record of students moving into graduate research at UCL and elsewhere.
A minimum of a 2nd Class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
Core modules: Literature project; optional: advanced topics in energy science and materials; advanced topics in physical chemistry; biological chemistry; concepts in computational and experimental chemistry; frontiers in experimental physical chemistry; inorganic rings, chains and clusters; intense radiation sources in modern chemistry; microstructural control in materials science; numerical methods in chemistry; pathways, intermediates and function in organic chemistry; principles of drug design; principles and methods of organic synthesis; simulation methods in materials chemistry; stereochemical control in asymmetric total synthesis; structural methods in modern chemistry; synthesis and biosynthesis of natural products; topics in quantum mechanics.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory classes and research supervision. Assessment is through the dissertation, unseen written examinations, research papers, a written literature survey, and an oral exam. All students will be expected to attend research seminars relevant to their broad research interest.
Studentships funded by EPSRC and NERC; teaching assistantships within the department; industrially-sponsored studentships.
