About

The principal component of this degree is an intensive novel research project providing 'hands-on' training in methods and techniques at the cutting edge of scientific research. The Chemical Research programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is particularly suitable for those wishing to embark on a research career. This programme is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Overview

Students develop a systematic approach to devising experiments and/or computations and gain familiarity with a broad range of synthetic, analytical and spectroscopic techniques, acquiring skills for the critical analysis of their experimental and computational observations. 

They also broaden their knowledge of chemistry through a selection of taught courses and are able to tailor the programme to meet their personal interests.

Careers

This Chemical Research programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is designed to provide first-hand experience of research at the cutting-edge of chemistry and is particularly suitable for those wishing to embark on an academic career (i.e. doctoral research) in this area, although the research and critical thinking skills developed will be equally valuable in a commercial environment.
