School of Chemistry

Education and training

We offer an innovative new training framework and develop an ethos for sustainability that will be unique in the UK – the creation of a 'benign by design' research culture for the 21st century chemist.

We aim to make new scientists from Nottingham industry ready, with a thorough understanding of the sustainability and environmental impact of their work.

In addition, our unique Carbon Neutral Laboratory building will provide outstanding facilities for teaching.


MSc Green and Sustainable Chemistry

The principal objective of this course is to train the next generation of scientists to appreciate, assess and address the challenges of sustainability across chemistry using industries through the implementation of robust, innovative science and technology. 

It will be delivered by the School of Chemistry and collaborators through specialist courses and seminars, workshops, summer schools and industrial placements.

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry

We offer a four-year programme designed to equip you with a comprehensive set of skills required for a career in academia and industry.

The first year of our CDT programme is designed to provide you with high-level foundation training involving formal lectures, workshops, technical and lab skills training and transferrable skills training.


During their first year on the programme you will, supported by the CDT staff and academics from the fields of Chemistry, Engineering and Biosciences, develop your main research project. You will produce a comprehensive literature review, research project proposal, present the proposal to a panel of experts, undertake a mini research project, (feasibility study) and write a project report.
