Why choose this course
Our BSc and MChem Chemistry courses will teach you the fundamentals of chemistry while also allowing you to make your own discoveries. We’re accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, and are ranked 7th in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2019.

Our courses also offer Professional Training placements with leading organisations in the UK and abroad, helping you to gain the confidence to translate your ideas into practice. Our small and friendly department offers one of the best staff-to-student ratios in the country, and scored 92 per cent for overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey (2018).

What you will study
Our chemistry courses combine modern, practical chemistry with core theory. You’ll explore topics including energy and fuel cells, advanced materials, natural products and advanced analytical techniques.

You can also choose to complete a Professional Training placement, with opportunities available among leading chemical companies in the UK and further afield.

You can apply to study for either a BSc or an MChem (Master of Chemistry). The MChem builds on the BSc course with a masters year, and is a direct route to a masters qualification. On an MChem, you’ll spend a year doing research with an industry partner before returning for a final year of masters-level modules. You may have the option to switch to a BSc or MChem during your studies.
