University of York


In the Department of Chemistry we offer a range of programmes that can be taken full time or part time. Research projects can be carried out in virtually any area of chemistry as long as a suitable project and supervisor can be allocated meaning you can specialise in your own specific area of interest. You will work under the guidance of an academic supervisor who is expert in that particular field, and alongside other members of the research group including academics, post-doctoral researchers as well as fellow postgraduate students.

Entry requirements

For entry onto research degrees, the University usually requires a minimum of a 2.2 or equivalent in a relevant subject (chemistry, or chemistry related).

Assessment methods

You will be required to write up the results of your research project in a thesis which will be examined by at least two examiners. In some cases an oral examination by be requested, but this is at the discretion of the examiners.

Sponsorship information

A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
