About

This Inorganic Chemistry course at the University of Oxford is a research degree leading to the award of an MSc by Research in Inorganic Chemistry. Many training opportunities are available throughout the course, but the focus of the course is the research project.

Overview

You will be admitted as a Probationary Research Student and will join a research group supervised by one or more members of the Department of Chemistry, sometimes in collaboration with other departments. 

During the first year on the Inorganic Chemistry course at the University of Oxford, in addition to starting work on your research, you will be encouraged to follow training courses chosen from the vast number offered by the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division Graduate School, and it is recommended that you attend at least three of these. A quarterly report on your progress is submitted by your supervisor throughout the course. 

Graduate destinations

The number of students on this course is so small that statistics are not meaningful. The department runs an annual careers conference for graduate students and the careers service offers a wide variety of support, including CV workshops.

The department also hosts a large number of visits from prospective employers, where you can find out more information. There is an alumni officer, who keeps in touch with graduates, and the department runs a number of social and scientific events for them.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • At the end of the first year you will undergo a Transfer of Status assessment, which is to ensure that you have the potential to gain the degree.
  • This assessment will be made on the basis of a report and oral examination.
  • Research proceeds with quarterly reporting until the project is complete. The degree is examined by thesis and oral examination by two examiners, one of whom is normally from Oxford and one from elsewhere.
  • Most MSc by Research students submit their thesis within two years.
