This course is similar in structure to our MSc Chemistry, but has a larger proportion of research experience, and fewer lectures. 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. **Research project** You'll carry out an extended research project across the full 12 months of the academic year and work alongside professional scientists. You will have the opportunity to get really involved in your research area and enough time to produce some academically significant results. You'll select your project from a wide range of research areas across the department. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
