Few disciplines are as stimulating, exciting and fast-moving as chemistry.

As a student of chemistry, you’ll seek answers to some of life’s most fundamental questions. You’ll learn about the latest advances in inorganic, organic, analytical, physical, computational, forensic and medicinal chemistry, and you’ll harness the power of new technologies.

  • The Guardian University Guide 2021 ranks our chemistry courses 10th in the UK and our Department has one of the best staff-to-student ratios in the country.
  • Our MChem and BSc degree courses are also accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
