Current Postgraduate Students


The Department of Chemistry aims to provide all graduate students with excellent and relevant graduate education, combining our carefully selected compulsory course elements with the freedom to choose your own bespoke additional series of academic lectures and workshops from our extensive and evolving range, directly supporting both your research and broader chemistry knowledge base. In addition, we provide a Careers Programme: we have worked together with the University Careers Service to combine basic sessions on relevant skills which will feature every year with a selection given by alumni of the Department who have gone on to careers in a multitude of different areas (running biennially), informing your decisions about your own future in an informal and unpressured setting.

The programme aim in coming years is to increase the topics covered by our wide-ranging and high profile Faculty members, ultimately creating a schedule in which many sessions will run once every three years in rotation.  As a first year graduate student in the Chemistry Department and guided by your Supervisor, you should aim to attend as many sessions as look interesting and relevant to you and you will be expected to provide a listing of courses/seminars you have attended as part of your first year report submission.  This may then provide a talking point in your end of year oral examination.
