Our research community includes over 146 postdoctoral researchers and 347 postgraduate students. We have research links with over 80 different companies and over 150 overseas universities and research institutes. The Physical Chemistry program is offered by The University of Manchester.

Overview

The The University of Manchester has outstanding facilities, with for example 9 high resolution NMR spectrometers and 1 solid state, 3 area detectors and several powder systems for X-ray crystallography, and it hosts a national EPR service. 

Its research has been recognised both by funding bodies, who are currently providing over £40M of research grants, and by numerous national and international prizes and awards.

In addition to superb research facilities, postgraduates in the school have a graduate common room and use of a computer cluster. You receive training in health and safety, fire fighting, library skills and written and oral presentation skills. 

If you do not have a masters degree you take taught course units in chemistry.
