What do you study?
Taught Modules include:
Catalyst evaluation and design, Supramolecular Chemistry: Concepts and Perspectives, Inorganic Materials Chemistry, Biomimetics and Interface Chemistry.
The content and availability of these modules is dynamic and at the forefront of science. The detailed content and availability will depend on the developments in the respective fields. In addition, a supporting module including the fundamentals of materials chemistry will be provided by distance learning for students needing to enhance or refresh their basic knowledge.
You will undertake an extended research project on a full-time basis from February onwards in an area related to your chosen pathway from those offered by research teams within the School. The Research Project will
involve the design and implementation of a major research task, a dissertation and a poster presentation.
Assessment will be carried out with a range of methods, including seminars, presentations, exams and laboratory write-ups.

Your future career
At Nottingham Trent University, we know that your employability and job prospects are crucial factors in your choice of university. You need to know that your MRes will be worth the time and money you spend on it.
Nottingham Trent University has one of the highest graduate employment records in the UK.
Our strength lies in the relevance of our degrees to the real world. In all subject areas, we encourage students to recognise their transferable skills and their application to a multitude of careers.
By taking an MRes in Advanced Materials Chemistry you will benefit from the progressive development of a variety of skills, such as advanced laboratory techniques and critical analysis and synthesis of a breadth and depth of relevant chemistry-specific research.
Place of study
Study takes place in modern, purpose-built teaching units at Nottingham Trent University’s Clifton campus, an attractive, self-contained greenfield site near to the vibrant city of Nottingham. Teaching staff are accessible and located close to specialist teaching laboratories, lecture theatres and
Services at Clifton Student Village include a bar and diner, supermarket, refectory, bookshop, and more than 700 study bedrooms, most with en suite facilities. The campus also contains an extensive library and sports facilities including a fitness suite, sports hall and an all-weather floodlit pitch. Recently at the Clifton campus, a new observatory containing a state-of-the-art-telescope was installed as well as a major new building housing the Centre for Effective Learning for Science (CELS) and the Natural Sciences Research Centre (NSRC).
There are frequent buses into the city centre and all of the University’s City site facilities, including the £13m Boots Library and Students’ Union building, are open to use by students based at Clifton.
