A PhD gives a graduate the chance to specialise in a specific area of chemistry whilst  completing a major piece of original research. The research will be undertaken under the direct supervision of a member of the academic staff and will typically be funded for 3 or 4 years.

An overview of some of the research that takes place in the department can be found on the research pages, with links to the appropriate staff members.

As well as pure research PhDs, UCL Chemistry also offers a number of specialised PhD programmes that include periods of study or industrial placement.
