MSc This is a research degree leading to the award of a MSc by research in Inorganic Chemistry.

The major focus of the course is the research project, and a typical week will therefore be devoted mostly to lab work (in its broadest definition), supplemented by literature surveys, preparation of reports and group meetings. In addition to work on your research, you will be encouraged to follow training courses chosen from the vast number offered by the department and the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division Graduate School, and it is recommended that you attend at least three of these. The department also hosts a variety of seminar series, some of which feature invited speakers from around the world.

DPhil This is a research degree leading to the award of a DPhil in Inorganic Chemistry.

The major focus of the course is the research project, and a typical week will therefore be devoted mostly to lab work (in its broadest definition), supplemented by literature surveys, preparation of reports and group meetings. During the first year, in addition to starting work on your research, you will be encouraged to follow training courses chosen from the vast number offered by the department and the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division Graduate School, and it is recommended that you attend at least three of these. The department also hosts a variety of seminar series, some of which feature invited speakers from around the world.
