Programme description

The School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science is a world leader in industrially relevant research and teaching in chemical engineering and related subjects. 

We undertake leading-edge multidisciplinary, creative and relevant research on a wide range of topics. Focused on advancing the science and engineering of complex systems and addressing different scales and levels of complexity, the research in the School is carried out within four main research themes:

  • Multi-scale and Multiphase Systems
  • Self-sustaining Biological Systems
  • Sustainable Industrial Systems
  • Measurement Science and Instrumentation Systems

Each of our academics is a highly respected expert in their own area, and our staff includes chemical engineers, chemists, physicists, biologists, analytical scientists and mathematicians.

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Band A £3,996; Band B £5,450; Band C £7,350; Band D £12,550
    International students (per annum): Band A £18,000; Band B £18,450; Band C £19,150; Band D £23,150
  • MPhil (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Band A £1,998; Band B £2,725; Band C £3,675; Band D £6,275
    International students (per annum): Band A £9,000; Band B £9,225; Band C £9,575; Band D £11,575

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.

Coursework and assessment

Students will meet regularly with an academic project supervisor, who will take overall responsibility for the project, ensuring that facilities and training are available to make good progress. Annual progress review will take place with an independent academic mentor to ensure that the supervision arrangements and progress are satisfactory.

All research programmes have personal and professional development training units to enhance transferable skills.  Training courses cover themes such as thesis writing, business skills, career management and presentation skills.

Other resources include:

  • Library training and ongoing assistance from a dedicated School librarian
  • Option to attend undergraduate or MSc classes in the University that may be beneficial to studies
  • Invitation to International Seminar Programmes within the School, and in other Schools and Research Institutes around the University.  Studentw will be expected to participate in the School's Research Student Seminar Programme
  • Invitation to Careers Service events which includes meetings with employers and recruitment agencies as well as specialised training in career planning, job applications, interview techniques and CV writing

Research students was expected to present seminars within the School, and also to present their work as posters or talks at international conferences and external seminars, to increase confidence, develop communication skills and improve employability.
