Chemistry is an intriguing and diverse science. Our chemistry degrees take a wide ranging view of the subject and allow you to explore many aspects – from atmospheric chemistry to solid state and materials chemistry. We aim to allow you to achieve your potential, so we balance our courses to prepare you for a career in any area of the subject, while allowing you to develop as a researcher in a specialism of your choice. On this course, you’ll discover how chemistry shapes the world around us. You can study topics ranging from quantum mechanics to planetary atmospheres, from making organic chemicals to producing medicinal drugs and from bonding in metals to the structures of synthetic and biological materials. The course provides you with the opportunity to spend your 3rd year studying at a university abroad, a valuable experience which can boost your employability and aid your personal development. The study abroad year enables you to gain insight into the study of chemistry at one of our partner universities overseas. Many students have found this to be extremely worthwhile in helping broaden their horizons in terms of learning about a new culture and also improving their foreign language skills.
