Physics and Chemistry of minerals and Fluids, studies the structure, properties and stabilities of minerals and fluids. Particular emphasis is given to studies of mineral surfaces, amorphous precipitates and geofluids.
Innovative applications of advanced analytical, spectroscopic and imaging techniques are combined with theory to model the geometric and electronic structures and properties of minerals and their surfaces, fluid species, and mineral-fluid interactions. Various cutting edge techniques mean we can study, for example, the structure and chemistry of potentially toxic metals from their presence as trace elements in solution, through the formation of colloidal particles, and on to sorption at mineral surfaces, or precipitation as part of a solid phase.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:
- MPhil (full-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): Band 1 £6,200, Band 2 £8,850, Band 3 £12,550
International students (per annum): Band 1 £18,000, Band 2 £18,450, Band 3 £22,050
- MPhil (part-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): Band 1 £3,100; Band 2 £4,425; Band 3 £6,275
International students (per annum): Band 1 £9,000; Band 2 £9,225; Band 3 £11,025
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.
