The Department of Chemistry at UCL is the oldest in England and is consistently acknowledged as being one of the top Chemistry Departments in the UK. In the RAE 2008 it was ranked, as it has been since 2001, as one of the top 7 Chemistry Departments in the UK with all the submissions ranked as "internationally recognised" or better.

We offer three forms of postgraduate study; 1-year Masters degree (MSc or MRes), 3- or 4-year research degrees (PhD) or a 4-year research engineer degree (EngD).

Postgraduate Research 2

Our Masters programmes are intended to be an extension of the usual undergraduate education with a focus on a particular area of modern chemistry.

A PhD offers the chance to produce a major piece of original research and is typically taken over three years although we also offer a range of four year PhDs that include a taught component.

The EngD is a four year programme with up to 75% of the time spent in industry undertaking a project, or portfolio of projects, relevant to the needs of the industrial sponsor, and 25% at UCL attending courses which cover both specialist scientific topics and general project management and professional skills training relevant to the industrial environment.

Information on all aspects of studying at UCL as a postgraduate can be found on the UCL graduate study page and information specifically for international students thinking of studying at UCL can be found on the UCL international student page.
