Innovative applications of advanced analytical, spectroscopic and imaging techniques are combines 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 phrase.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:
MSc by Research (full-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): Band 1 £6,500, Band 2 £8,500, Band 3 £12,750
International students (per annum): Band 1 £23,000, Band 2 £25,000, Band 3 £27,000
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).
