This programme is for anyone who is interested in developing their research further or those who wish to follow career pathways which require research skills.
During the application process you will be asked to submit a research proposal. In order for us to assist you throughout the duration of your research degree it is important that your research interests fall into the research areas that the school is involved with. Once the research area has been selected, it is important to read some of the publications produced by the Academic supervisor. Should you not be able to access the publication please contact us directly and will be able to send you a copy. Applicants who are already working in an academic environment will also be asked to submit their publications list and any relevant teaching experience.
Below is a list of Chemistry specialisms followed by a keyword list provided by senior academic supervisors to help you identify possible research themes. Please also see the Research Topics information.
