Pursuing a research degree at the School of Chemistry could be one of the best experiences of your life. In addition to gaining research skills, making friends, meeting eminent researchers and being part of the research community, a research degree will help you to develop invaluable transferable skills which you can apply to academic life or a variety of professions outside of academia. It is necessary to obtain the approval of a supervisor before enrolling in the program. At the end of the 12-months period the student submits a final report and has an examination conducted by one external and one internal examiner.
