Graduate Research Pathway

A guaranteed masters + PhD pathway to fulfil your research ambitions

Are you ready for a career in research? Our Graduate Research Pathway guarantees you a place with us from masters through to your PhD.

If you’re offered a place in our Master of Science (Chemistry) with an entry score of at least 80%, you’ll also receive a conditional offer for the Doctor of Philosophy (Science) plus a guaranteed scholarship.

The Graduate Research Pathway provides you with the opportunity to work with leading researchers as part of the Industry project and into your PhD. Find out about our research groups.

By securing your PhD place early on, you can focus on your masters research project and coursework subjects, then transition into a PhD without the stress of reapplying.

To take up this conditional offer, you just need to:

  • Achieve a weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 80% over your MSc
  • Find a PhD supervisor before starting the PhD (we can assist with this)
  • Receive approval from the Head of School.

There’s no need to apply separately for the Graduate Research Pathway. When you apply for the Master of Science (Chemistry), you’ll automatically receive an offer if you have an entry score of at least 80%. Look out for further information in your MSc offer letter.
