Years 2 to 4
Students who successfully complete the training element of the course (TATE), will embark on their 3-year lab-based research project in chemical synthesis in June of their first year. Possible PhD project areas are listed on the PhD project areas section.
After TATE and alongside your PhD research project, your scientific development will continue to be enhanced by entrepreneurship training and further professional and academic courses provided by our industrial partners. Below is a sample of courses and activities that will be available to you during this period.
- Medicinal Chemistry
- Industrial Catalysis
- Process Chemistry
- Energetic Materials
- CV and Interview Technique
- Publishing your Research
As well as completing a range of short courses on various areas of chemistry, you will also become trained as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Ambassadors and carry out at least one Outreach activity.
As a result of this form of training, you will finish your PhD with a well-rounded set of transferable skills.
