Chemistry

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

Our Department has one of the best staff-to-student ratios in the country, with 92.5 per cent of our undergraduate chemistry students saying that they are satisfied with their course in the National Student Survey 2022. We also offer brilliant graduate support with 92 per cent of our undergraduates and 100 per cent of our postgraduates going on to employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes survey 2022, HESA).

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.
