Professor Rachel O'Reilly, Head of School of Chemistry:

Our new Chemistry with Sustainability degree programme, which we're offering at BSc and Integrated Masters level, will equip you to be at the forefront of opportunities for Chemistry graduates.

The scientific and transferable skills you develop are in high demand across industrial and academic research and analysis, as well as more widely in business and finance, and also, the public sector.

Our Chemistry with Sustainability degree programmes are a great choice for students interested in learning how chemistry is essential to establishing a more sustainable future.

Our degrees offer you the chance to play your part in solving some of the world's most complex problems in sustainability.

You'll build a deep understanding of theoretical and practical, organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry, and see how they all come together in specialist modules on sustainability.

You'll spend a lot of time in years 1-3 in practical classes in our Collaborative Teaching Laboratory.

This is a £40 million development that has equipped our undergraduates with some of the best laboratory facilities in the country.

For students on the Integrated Masters programme, in year 4 you'll also join one of our sustainability research groups, based in the Molecular Sciences building.

In this group you will do your MSci research project, tackling cutting edge challenges in sustainability.

The Molecular Sciences building is the new home for chemistry at Birmingham.

This five-floor building delivers 6,500 square metres of world-class space for research and education in chemistry, and has been built to the highest sustainability principles.
