MSc in Chemistry (by Research)

York, England, UK
Courses in UKCourses in England1 year full-time; 2 years part-time

Course description
The MSc by Research can be taken over one year full time or two years part time. It is entirely research based with assessment via submission of a thesis at the end of the research programme.

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 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. The Department of Chemistry has a distinctive interdisciplinary structure that underpins our nine research themes:

– Archaeological and Paleoenvironmental Chemistry
– Atmospheric Chemistry
– Biological Inorganic Chemistry
– Chemical and Structural Biology
– Green and Sustainable Chemistry
– Magnetic Resonance and Hyperpolarisation
– Molecular Materials
– Photochemistry and Spectroscopy
– Synthesis, Catalysis and Mechanisms

You are advised 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. 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.
