Chemistry at Huddersfield has deep roots. Our teaching and research dates back to the 1840s, when we were a centre for colour chemistry, supporting the textile and dyeing industries in the area, so studying with us means you can get the benefit of all that tradition while setting your sights firmly on the future. On top of getting a grounding in the core areas of organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry, you’ll get the chance to explore more specialist options during your studies, so you could find yourself delving into medicinal chemistry or getting to grips with forensic science. All helping you to tailor your degree to the kind of job you’d like to do after graduation. All along the way, the course is designed to help you gain knowledge of the fundamentals while developing your logical reasoning and imaginative problem-solving skills. But it’s during your third year, when you get to experience a placement in an industry setting, that you’ll really be able to put all that into practice. So if you’d like to inject a boost of real-world experience into your studies, this could be the ideal choice for you. Choosing to study with us means you’ll be taught by academics in specialist areas of chemistry all educated to doctoral level in their subjects and involved in forward-thinking research on a course accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
