Sheffield is an exciting place to study chemistry. Staff here are working on potentially world-changing projects, including catalytic clothing that purifies air, and sustainable energy and food production. The partner Department of Physics and Astronomy, where you will spend roughly half your time, also has a reputation for excellence: staff have been involved in some major discoveries, including the Higgs Boson and gravitational waves.
When it comes to teaching, you can expect quality, consistency and practical experience.
Graduates work all over the world in the pharmaceutical industry, fine chemicals, materials and bioscience for companies such as Unilever and GlaxoSmithKline. But their problem-solving abilities and their high level of numeracy are valued outside the sector, in financial services, IT, management and teaching.
