This degree provides excellent training if you are considering a career as a professional chemist in industry, research or higher education. In your first two years you will gain a thorough grounding in the core areas of chemistry. As you progress you will choose from a range of specialist options on topics such as atmospheric chemistry, polymers, organic synthesis, catalysis, biomolecular modelling and many more. Much of your final year is dedicated to your own research project; it's an opportunity to think independently, develop your own ideas and gain first-hand experience in a stimulating research environment. You have the option of spending your third year on placement in industry or at one of our partner universities abroad.
