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.  The Theoretical Chemistry program is offered by The University of Manchester.

Overview

If you do not have a masters degree you take taught course units in chemistry.The The University of Manchester has particular strengths in biological chemistry and organic synthesis, computational and theoretical chemistry, materials chemistry (inorganic and polymer), magnetic resonance and structural chemistry, radiochemistry and environmental chemistry and nanoscience.

State-of-the-art equipment, new laboratories and first-rate spectroscopic services support and compliment these activities. Each Theoretical Chemistry student has at least one supervisor and an advisor with pastoral responsibility.

Career opportunities
