For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/ucasOxICFM offers a four-year doctoral course focusing on synthetic inorganic chemistry. It features integrated academic/industrial courses and substantive projects spanning the breadth of molecular, nano-scale and extended materials chemistry. The Centre for Doctoral Training in Inorganic Chemistry for Future Manufacturing (OxICFM) aims to train the next generation of doctoral scientists in the synthesis of inorganic materials relevant to the future prosperity of the manufacturing sector. The course has been designed in collaboration with ten industrial partners representing a range of business sizes and technological expertise, in order to provide a holistic understanding of all aspects of the chemical manufacturing process.OxICFM uses a cohort model (12+ students per year), allied to training incorporating faculty-, industry- and peer-led components, to deliver scientists with (i) a broad spectrum training across the interface between inorganic synthesis and manufacturing, and (ii) in-depth expertise in one specific stream (molecular, nano-scale or extended materials).Students are trained in a single cohort initially (in the first six months) through a series of taught courses, covering a wide range of topics in synthetic inorganic chemistry. From the second half of year one, students will focus primarily on their substantive research project, which they will have chosen prior to the start of their course. During all four years of the programme students also receive a tailored programme designed to broaden their research and professional skills.

About this university

International students

Some 140 countries have attendees at Oxford and some 60% of the total student body is from outside the UK. There are various programs available for international students to help with orientation and integrating with life in Oxford as well as to help with legal matters such as immigration and visas. They can also help with practical matters such as dealing with finances and accessing health care with the National Health Service (NHS). Student life is filled with many traditions as befits a university of Oxford's age. One of these are the balls, held by the colleges with a formal dress code as well as smaller events regularly during the year. The Oxford University Student Union or OUSU, represents students and is their voice in debate about the university as well as organising student life organisations. There are a large number of sports available outside the classroom and many of these are of a high standard. The Boat Race is a famous example of a rowing race with nearby Cambridge University that is watched by up to 10 million TV viewers each year. There are also student newspapers and a radio station as well as performing arts groups. There are also student societies open to students who aren't studying the subject to learn something new and different.
