Chemistry

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

Our subject has one of the best staff-to-student ratios in the country, with chemistry being ranked top 10 in the UK for overall student satisfaction* in the National Student Survey 2023.

We also offer brilliant graduate support with 94 per cent of our undergraduates and 100 per cent of our postgraduate research students going on to employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes 2023, HESA).

We are placed 16th in the UK by the Complete University Guide 2024 and 20th by the Guardian University Guide 2024.

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 through our Royal Society of Chemistry accredited courses.
