    (Original post by geor)
    I'm looking to do a chemistry degree in the future and thought it might be a good idea to get some work experience.
    However, I've heard that it can be incredibly difficult to get.

    If you managed to get some work experience, I'd love to know how you got it and with which company/institution it was with.

    I want to do chemistry, or biochemistry too, and whilst researching i found some good options, normally its not what you know its who you know. So ask your chemistry teachers if shes got any friends from uni that are now working for glaxosmith kline, or others.
    But if you go onto their website you can sign up for work experience, and do the same for other chemical engineering companies.

    Because chemistry is such a broad subject its better to get a few from each sector, working in a lab at a hospital would be pretty good, so would working with a chemical engineer. Just keep looking.
