Working closely with an academic supervisor gives you the support to carry out your own independent research and make your own mark. We have a wealth of remarkable academics, but how do you know which team will be right for you.
We suggest you look at the School's website, and read up on some of the recent publications by faculty members. You should then identify at least one faculty member in the School of Chemistry who could be your supervisor, contact them to express your interest and discuss the projects they can offer. You will then need to make an application via our website and your nominated faculty member can help you with the application process. Your application requires the name of your nominated supervisor, and an outline proposal. Please contact your nominated supervisor for the outline proposal. After you complete your application, please inform your nominated supervisor.
