The University of Manchester
School of Chemistry
RadioChemistry-9The School has both a distinguished and an outstanding reputation for research covering most areas of chemistry. It is one of the largest chemistry research schools in Europe with more than 240 postgraduates, many of them funded by the EPSRC, BBSRC, Industry, University and School awards. A number of self-funded places are also available.

The School is a major partner in the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB), a novel research institute housed in an innovative new MIB building and in the Photon Science Institute and Dalton Nuclear Institute. The MIB building is specifically designed to accommodate an interdisciplinary research community derived from the biosciences, physical sciences, engineering and mathematics, with the aim of becoming a powerhouse of innovative research and technology development at the interface with biology.

We currently have a large portfolio of EPSRC research and BBSRC grants, alongside significant industrial and European funding, and the School currently holds more than £50 million of research grant. We enjoy world-class facilities and have several other centres strongly supported by industry, including:
  • Centre of Excellence for Biocatalysis (CoEBio3)
  • Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC)
  • Centre for Radiochemistry Research
  • Centre for Nanoporous Materials
  • Michael Barber Centre for Mass Spectrometry
  • OMIC and the Centre for Nanoporous Materials form part of the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry
2014 QS World University Rankings: The School of Chemistry at The University of Manchester is in the top five UK chemistry departments, the top ten European chemistry departments and is 40th worldwide.
