Jessica Hall, 2014 Cohort
The department has a lot of the state of the art facilities you will need when carrying out your PhD. It is very well equipped.
Stephen Hill, 2013 Cohort
The support on an admin and scientific level has been awesome, but I should also highlight the excellent pastoral side of the CDT.
Kelly Butterfield, 2012 Cohort
I chose this programme because of the skills training offered. This gives me a greater range of transferable skills when I come to look for a job.
Dan O'Flynn, 2013 Cohort
The lab rotations were a great part of the programme as they allowed me to work on three very different projects and meet a lot of new people whilst familiarising myself with a totally new environment and university.
Siying Zhong, 2014 Cohort
We have so much support from the technical staff and not only our research goes smoother but we also gain a deeper understanding of the techniques we are using.
Paul Walker, 2014 Cohort
Postgraduate study focuses more on novel research rather than teaching. This requires a willingness to think about problems and find solutions and explanations for the results you collect.
Krishna Mistry, 2014 Cohort
I have enjoyed the PACT period of the synthesis CDT. During the RBS projects I gained a lot of skills and knowledge in 3 diverse areas of chemistry and made me much more confident to start my PhD project.
Yunxiang He, 2014 Cohort
I plan to find a job in industry, especially in a cosmetic company or a raw material chemical supplier.
Ashleigh Griffith, 2012 Cohort
Having a cohort means you have support from very early on at the start of your PhD, you spend most of the PACT term discussing chemistry with them and this becomes very easy to do even after the PACT term stops.
