Additional programme information
Equality, diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the success of The University of Manchester, and is at the heart of all of our activities.
We know that diversity strengthens our research community, leading to enhanced research creativity, productivity and quality, and societal and economic impact.
We actively encourage applicants from diverse career paths and backgrounds and from all sections of the community, regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation and transgender status.
We also support applications from those returning from a career break or other roles.
We consider offering flexible study arrangements (including part-time: 50%, 60% or 80%, depending on the project/funder), carer support funds for conferences, and peer support networks for parents and carers.
All appointments are made on merit.
The University of Manchester and our external partners are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion.
Scholarships and bursaries
There are a range of scholarships, studentships and awards at university, faculty and department level to support both UK and overseas postgraduate researchers.
To be considered for many of our scholarships, you’ll need to be nominated by your proposed supervisor. Therefore, we’d highly recommend you discuss potential sources of funding with your supervisor first, so they can advise on your suitability and make sure you meet nomination deadlines.
For more information about our scholarships, visit our funding page or use our funding database to search for scholarships, studentships and awards you may be eligible for.
The Department has outstanding facilities, with for example 9 high resolution NMR spectrometers and 1 solid state, 3 area detectors and several powder systems for X-ray crystallography, and it hosts a national EPR service. Its research has been recognised both by funding bodies, who are currently providing over £40M of research grants, and by numerous national and international prizes and awards.
We offer comprehensive academic coverage across the chemical sciences and in all the core sub-disciplines of chemistry. We have strong research links with more than 80 different companies and more than 150 overseas universities and research institutes.
