Chemistry touches almost every aspect of our existence, and will be an essential part of the solutions to global issues in health, materials, and energy usage. Our School of Chemistry has received the highest national rating in the discipline of Chemical Sciences, and so our researchers are leaders in their field. We value the real world skills that employers require, and ensure that our students receive hands-on experience as they learn. Our degrees are taught by staff at the forefront of their fields of research, and this shines through in the quality of our graduates.
