Hi,

I'm into both chem and astro, and was wondering how I could pursue astrochem at uni. I know there aren't exact courses like that, but what type of courses should I apply to?

Already applied to Cambridge NatSci, imperial and UCL (chemistry courses). Will fill the rest later

Chem is the more preferable thing - my passion (and obsession). Would love to take astro courses on the side

Have you tried googling 'astrochemistry research group' and seeing if you can find what sorts of backgrounds the PhD students and postdocs have?

I saw a royal society of chemistry article of an astrochemist. He did Chem with Molecular Physics at Nottingham. Gotta dive deeper then!

Best bet is to find a good uni with an astrochem group and during your time there get friendly/express your interest to the leader, then hopefully land a final year/MChem project there. These tend to lead to PhD's if they like you. I know Sheffield do a bit of astrochem, Anthony Meijer did my interview back when I applied there.
