A Supportive Learning Environment

We offer a range of Single Honours and Combined Honours undergraduate degree programmes in Chemistry over three and four years duration. Using an innovative learning approach that combines online and in-person teaching, you will be fully supported to get the most out of your course. With courses fully accredited by the RSC, we have consistently high levels of student satisfaction.


Although the global pandemic has placed some restrictions on some elements of our courses, we have substantially redesigned all research projects to maximise student experience and ensure our degrees remain accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Quality teaching

Take a tour of the CTL with friendly student demonstrators Claire and Alex

The world-leading research in the School of Chemistry influences our teaching, as academics draw upon scientific findings and provide cutting-edge content for your degree. You will be supported throughout your degree by your own personal tutor and individual subject tutors to achieve your full potential.

Excellent facilities

Our student Seraphim explains how the new CTL has shaped her degree.

There has been significant recent investment in our laboratories, as well as analytical facilities, which house state-of-the-art instrumentation that undergraduates will use throughout their studies; including the brand new £40 million Collaborative Teaching Laboratory.

Industry and Academic partnerships

We have a wide range of partnerships with industry leaders and global academic institutions to give students plenty of choice on Chemistry courses with a year out. Our Chemistry with Study Abroad (F106) students have spent their year at universities as far-flung as New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada, Germany and Singapore. Chemistry with Industrial Experience (F104) students benefit from our close partnerships with GlaxoSmithKline, BASF, Nestlé, AstraZeneca, Roche, Reckitt Benckiser and more, with many going into jobs in the chemical industry after their studies.
