University of Oxford Course Type: Master research Start Date: October
Location: Oxford, United Kingdom Duration: Full time - 2 Years Fees/total cost: EUR 19,037.34 (GBP 14,108.00) - EUR 58,572.06 (GBP 43,406.00)


About the course

This is a research degree leading to the award of an MSc by Research in Organic Chemistry. Many training opportunities are available throughout the course, but the focus of the course is the research project.

You will be admitted as a probationary research student and will join a research group supervised by one or more members of the Department of Chemistry, sometimes in collaboration with other departments. During the first year, in addition to starting work on your research, you will be encouraged to follow training courses chosen from the vast number offered by the MPLS Graduate School, and it is recommended that you attend at least three of these. A termly report on your progress is submitted by your supervisor throughout the course. 

At the end of the first year you must apply for transfer to MSc by Research status, which ensures that you have the potential to gain the degree. This assessment will be made on the basis of a report and oral examination. 

Research proceeds with termly reporting until the project is complete. The degree is examined by thesis and oral examination by two examiners, one of whom is normally from Oxford and one from elsewhere.
