We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Physical Chemistry equip postgraduates with advanced knowledge of the structure and function of atoms and molecules, and their chemical bonding capabilities.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Chemistry, Physics or Chemical Engineering.
A large range and breadth of chemical systems are analysed within this field, including energy and force, thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, and chemical equilibrium. Practical training is offered in statistical dynamics, analysing chemical synthesis with regards to reaction kinetics and reaction rates.
Scope for research is also highly variable. You might, for example, wish to explore nanotechnology, the identity of ions and the electrical conductivity of materials. Or, you may even explore the structure and surface chemistry of cell membranes within the human body.
Applications for Physical Chemistry provide almost endless career possibilities. You could for example be at the forefront of efficient solar energy production, the design of biomimetic (synthetic chemical) innovations, or research the latest advancements in synthetic or organic polymers.
