Postgraduate courses

The School of Chemistry is committed to tackling current and future scientific challenges, and our current research priorities, facilities and infrastructure put us in a strong position to achieve this. Of course, we also need enthusiastic and enterprising young research workers who are eager to learn, determined to succeed, and committed to carrying out research to the highest standards of excellence. Currently, there are over 100 postgraduate students and postdoctoral research fellows carrying out research across a broad range of chemical disciplines.  Please visit our research pages for more information on the research we undertake.

International Students and Scholarships

Over 40% of the young researchers in the School of Chemistry have come to Birmingham from outside the UK, and this contributes to the strong international atmosphere that is a major feature of the School of Chemistry. Students from the EU, generally, have the same scholarshipm opportunities as UK students. International students from outside the EU can obtain information on postgraduate scholarships from the links below:
