The project will occupy about two thirds of the year, with the remainder of the time devoted to lectures and preparation of a chemistry MPhil thesis.
In common with most British universities, all students planning to complete a PhD must formally register for an MPhil degree in the first instance. We are confident that students will then transfer after one year to a PhD registration upon completion of a mini-thesis describing the project objectives and preliminary results. A PhD programme is normally completed in a period of three years after entry to the Graduate School.
MPhil Chemistry applicants are required to submit a University application form with transcripts.
UK students will be interviewed in person and EU/international students may be interviewed by telephone.Key facts
