MRes Advanced Molecular Synthesis

Imperial College London
London, England, UK
Courses in UKCourses in England1 year full-time

Course description
Our MRes in Advanced Molecular Synthesis focuses on the challenge of designing molecules and synthesising them in an efficient manner on a meaningful timescale. The ability to do this has the potential to unlock new opportunities to address societal challenges.

At present the efficiency and speed of synthesis remain a bottleneck in the development of many compounds for use in fields as diverse as healthcare, agrochemicals, molecular optics and smart materials.

This multidisciplinary programme will combine a 9-month project of original research with courses and training in the latest approaches designed to automate, analyse and understand synthetic processes.

You will gain a strong understanding of the rational design and efficient synthesis of organic and inorganic compounds alongside the knowledge needed to bridge the current technological gap between academic and industrial research laboratories.

You will have access to the facilities at the recently established ‘Dial-a-Molecule’ Grand Challenge institute Centre for Rapid Online Analysis of Reactions (ROAR) at the new Molecular Sciences Research Hub (MSRH) at White City.

In contrast to MSc programmes, the ethos of the MRes course is to focus on learning through research as well as interactive workshops and group work based on independent research and critical evaluation. The material will be delivered by academics and industry partners, who are experts in the design and application of synthesis in a modern context.

Tuition fees and scholarships
The level of tuition fees you pay is based on your fee status, which we assess based on UK government legislation.

For more information on the funding opportunities that are available, please visit our Fees and Funding website.

Entry requirements
We welcome students from all over the world and consider all applicants on an individual basis.

For advice on the requirements for the qualifications listed here please contact the Department (details below).

We also accept a wide range of international qualifications. If the requirements for your qualifications are not listed here, please see our academic requirements by country page for guidance on which qualifications we accept.

How to apply
All applicants must apply online.

You can usually apply for up to two courses, although your second choice will only be considered if your first-choice application is unsuccessful.

Most courses don’t have a formal closing date, but popular courses close when they are full, so you should apply early to avoid disappointment. There may also be funding deadlines that apply to you.

You will need to upload documents with your applications, which may include transcripts and degree certificates.

Offer holders will need to pay a deposit to secure your place. This will be deducted from the balance of your tuition fees.

For full details on the online application process, or to start your application, please visit the How to Apply section of our website.
