Courses in UKCourses in England1 year full-time; 2 years part-time

Course description
An MSc by Research is a one year programme during which you would work on your own research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor. An MSc by Research is often a popular choice, as it can enhance your undergraduate qualification and it can be a valuable stepping stone to those wishing to embark on a PhD programme.

An MSc by Research can be undertaken in any area of chemistry, as long as a suitable project can be identified among the many research groups in the department. You may wish to look at the research interests of our members of academic staff in order to identify those with whom you may be interested in working. www.york.ac.uk/chemistry/staff/academic

As an MSc student, you would work under the expert guidance of an academic supervisor, as well as alongside post-doctoral staff and PhD students, therefore gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Assessment for the MSc requires you to submit a dissertation for examination, based on the findings of your research. The dissertation can be up to 25,000 words. Sometimes MSc students are required to have a viva voce examination, however, this is not always the case.
